Using CloudShare Hosting to Test Upcoming CloudShare Releases

June 18th, 2013 | Author: | Filed under: CloudShare, Dev / Test | Tags: , , , , , , , ,

CloudShare like many of our customers, is software.  And as all you developers know, developing, debugging, and testing software has many parts.  Because we are in the same boat as you, it would make sense for us to “eat our own dog food”, and use CloudShare to develop CloudShare.

Love My CloudShare

February 9th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: CloudShare, SharePoint | Tags: , , , ,

Recently I had to get a SharePoint Foundation environment up pretty quickly to test a branding solution that was built for a client. Kris Wagner had always talked up CloudShare, so I decided to give it a try.  Easy was not the word, it was easier than easy and now I am hooked.

Our company purchased a few licenses for CloudShare and I have to say this makes life easier for our IT gurus.  They were frequently asked at the last minute to build XYZ in the cloud for this demo or this project.  Now they can focus on more important tasks and the developers and I can spin up almost any environment needed in minutes.

Time for CloudFest Denver

Many of you may already be cloud computing experts.  Some of you, however, may be more like me, and just catching on to the cloud phenom.  The word “cloud” paints the lovely image of all of your things stored in the sky.  I don’t know about all of you, but I actually picture my own personal cloud that I can pull down at any moment to gather my information.  Well, let’s get real for a moment.

I don’t always test my code but…

January 10th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: CloudShare, Demos & POCs, Dev / Test, SharePoint | Tags: , , , ,

One of my twitter friends sent me this picture today, and wow did it strike a chord. Some people try too hard to be “The Most Interesting Man in the World”, many otherwise cautious and well intentioned SharePoint superstars like to test code, changes, and migrations on live data. Of course you or I would never do that, but some daring people like to live on the edge.

Dev & Test in the Cloud: your first aid kit

September 27th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: CloudShare, Dev / Test, SharePoint | Tags: , , , ,

Good thing I love my CloudShare team, as I have to drive an hour and 15 minutes every day to reach them.  To make this drive tolerable, I use radio.  When I started I was listening to a syndicated radio station that kept me laughing the whole way into San Mateo.  But recently the station was cancelled.  Trembling in road rage fear, I quickly switched to a NPR station via Bay Areas KQED.  What does that have to do with this post?  I will tell you.

Web access to your CloudShare machines

September 13th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: Demos & POCs, Dev / Test | Tags: , , , , , , ,

There are several instances you may need to access your CloudShare server from an external browser, without having to remotely log into your machine using RDP or Console access. This is especially useful if you’re showing customers a demo of your Web-based application or the QA team needs to test the Web interface. Well, we’ve had a feature called Web Access, which provides any-time Web access to your machines via a persistent Web address (URL).
