*Totally* OT: Sharepoint

I know this is the openSUSE forum (I use kde4.1 myself).

But, my day job currently involves working out the arcane mysteries of programmming MS sharepoint workflows and I wonderd if any of you were in the same boat, and had any links to share with me.

Basically, right, I can’t get it to work properly. I’m starting to vibrate in my chair, my coffee intake has tripled and I’m scared that my hair will start falling out!

Any help/flames/comiserations gratefully received :slight_smile:

I’m not smart enough to be a programmer. But if I were I’d hope I was lucky
enough to not have to work with anything from Redmond.

You have my deepest sympathy and warmest wishes for a better day job.

And, sorry I cannot help more (or at all).

I know where you’re coming from. We’ve just had to design a Sharepoint site and now need to keep it maintained. It’s a pain.


I program sharepoint (moss 2007) at work. I think msdn is the best place to start. There’s also sharepoint blog.

If you send me a PM i may be able to help if i have more info


saahne: thanks for that link - I don’t think I can persuade them to adopt it wholesale, but it looks like it can plug in to an existing sharepoint and if it makes life easier then I think its something to look at seriously.

geoff: thanks for the offer, I may take you up on it :slight_smile:

I’ve been learning sharepoint workflows using VS2008 for about 2 weeks now, and although I am figuring it out, sometimes I’ll do something that looks obvious,and lo and behold it will break the whole thing - silently!!

eg: I added an ifelse to my (working) while-loop workflow, now the thing never even checks the while conditions. why? who knows… it just stays there looking at me…
