  1. Scheduled SharePoint workflows

    I have created a custom list called Reclamations with a few new columns:The purpose is to send an email to the responsible people 2 days before the expiration date.

  3. Retrieve list items from a SharePoint list

    Returning items from a SharePoint list is very simple task so this article is going to be one of the shortest I have written. You can use GetItemById() method to return a single list item or GetItems(CamlQuery) to return multiple items. CAML or Collaborative Application Markup Language is an XML-based language that is used to define the fields and views that are used in sites and lists. Passing an undefined CamQuery object to the GetItems method will return all of the items in the list.The next code...

  9. Programming languages - salaries and demand (October 2014)

    A few months ago we wrote up a brief analysis of key programming languages, showing the demand for each language and the salaries being offered. We now have almost 3 million job advertisements in our analysis engine so we should take a fresh look at what it says.In July, we saw three main clusters, the established leaders, the followers, and the niche.The leaders of the group are still ahead in very much the same positions. Java, C++, and C all pay well and are in high demand. JavaScript and C# are...
