As part of my work at OmniPath, I need to create an LDAP provider that confirms credentials if they are not already in the ASP.NET Membership system. It seems that ADAM is the pathway to this, but I bet there are a bunch of tools out there that already will do this for me, maybe even already set up for Community Server. When I was at the Community Server Developers Conference last month, I talked to a few people that had done this, but did I write down their email? Nooooo.... Anyway, that's the next job that I need to look at.
Boy, it's nice to be back writing random thoughts in to a blogging engine. How did I not do this for the last four months?
A client reminded me of a project that we did together ten years ago that revolved around tracking scope points into requirements into designs into test plans. It was very slick. There was a way for people to comment on the document remotely, and then the author could mark down comments and accept the changes, and only the unhandled comments would be taken to the quality gate meetings.
Sound familiar? Sharepoint and Office 2007.
So, I am going to look at renewing that project using contemporary technology. There is a lot of stuff already out there - with a good set of templates, I bet I won't even have to write any code! W00t! Looking forward to that.
