• Speaking at SharePoint Saturday Toronto 2015

    This year again I have the opportunity to speak at the SPS Toronto. I’ll give a speech about the graph “Making Graph data useful to your company”.

    We’ll talk about the Graph, delve, yammer, machine learning and a lot of other interesting concepts and the conversation will be aimed towards developers.

    If you’re in the area Saturday September the 19th 2015 don’t hesitate to register to the event. Just as a reminder SPS are free events organized by the community with lot of great sessions. This is a good occasion to expand your network, learn a lot of things and to spend a good day.

    The event will take place at Microsoft Toronto offices (Mississauga).

    See you there!

  • unable to find version '3.1.2' of package 'appforsharepointonlinewebtoolkit'

    With office development tools for visual studio 2015 (and probably with august 2015 update for vs 2013 too, but I haven’t tried it), you may run into the following error:

    unable to find version '3.1.2' of package 'appforsharepointonlinewebtoolkit'

    And so while doing an “update-package” in nuget console or if you have a restore packages step in your build process. (mandatory if like me you don’t include the packages folder into source control).

    This error is caused by the fact that the template for MVC provider-hosted SharePoint apps has a newer version of the nuget than what’s available on

    To fix that just uninstall version 3.1.2 and install the current version (install-package appforsharepointonlinewebtoolkit)

    There are differences between those two packages in SharePointContext.cs and .vb. You can either choose to ignore it or copy/paste the code of 3.1.2 before uninstalling the package.

    Note that if you do so the package will be marked as modified and you won’t be able to do automatic updates anymore. You’ll have to uninstall the package and install it again when next update comes out.

    I gave this information to Microsoft teams and I’ll let you know if any update on the subject comes out.

    Happy coding!

  • New Microsoft Conference: the AzureCon

    Hi everybody!

    Short post to let you know that Microsoft recently announced a new event: the AzureCon. First edition on Sept the 29th.

    This free online event will focus on Microsoft’s cloud technologies (mostly Azure) and will be about news and things to come on the platform.

    Great speakers, awesome content, this is the occasion for you to learn a lot about Azure technologies and their usage.

    This conference should happen multiple times a year (approximately 4), main reason being: ”with releases and updates every 3 weeks for each service, we simply couldn’t wait for an annual event to announce everything like we do with Ignite and Build” (Microsoft Azure Product Manager)

    To register to the event just click this link! Feel free to spread the word!
