SharePoint 2013 App vs Solution

This is going to be a horrible meta-post, you know the kind that contains little to no original material and points you to other stuff (like your last post I hear you say).

I like the idea of a post over on the MCS UK blog on SharePoint 2013 Development (Apps versus Solutions) as it concisely runs through the thought process when considering how to construct your solution in SharePoint 2013. My caveat is the inclusion of Sandboxed solutions. Sandbox solutions will not be available in the next version of SharePoint, and if you agree with what is said in Sandboxed Solutions are deprecated in SharePoint 2013 they are only included in 2013 as a favour for those upgrades from 2010 (yes – the version that introduced Sandboxed Solutions).

I guess consideration of application longevity is a bit of a moot point in our industry but I’d be inclined to move Sandboxed Solutions down the list as a bit of a dead end.

Motorcycle Racing Interviews

After a little encouragement I’ve been thinking about resurrecting this blog and posting more. While I consider content for longer posts I had to post links to a couple of interviews of Motorcycle Racers that I enjoyed.

First of these is a three parter with Valentino Rossi, an Italian Motorcycle racer in the MotoGP prototype series, by Motorcycle News (MCN) on YouTube:

The second is with an Australian called Simon Pavey who has been based in the UK for a long time and runs the BMW Off Road Skills school in South Wales. I’m off to do Level 1 of the ORS School this weekend but it is an interview about his Dakar exploits on MotoPod which is really interesting. Simon’s chat starts part way through this podcast:
