2012 – most popular blog posts

It’s time to summerize my blog year 2012.

Until my summer vacation, the number of visitors to my blog weren’t great at all. I had a monthly average on approxematly 100 hits per month. But after I started to write more posts from April/May, I got more hits. And when I started to become more active on the Microsoft MSDN forum, the monthly hits raised from 100 till 500. This is probably not great, but I’m satisfied. There are some souls that is following my blog and take time to read them.That is encouraging 🙂

My top 5 blogs, with most hits, for 2012 are:

  1. Read/write chunked data in C#
  2. Force TFS to sync with Active Directory
  3. CRM Email Router: enabling logging
  4. Report Builder 3.0 tutorial
  5. OpenXML SDK: reading Excel 2007/2010 documents

The post with “Chunked data” has been one of my posts with most hits – ever. It is not a great blog post IMO, but I have decied to write a follow-up with better examples during a few months to give the reader more value for their time and efford.

The post with forcing syncronisation of the TFS persmissions is just a refferal to another blog post with a few pointers. This is a common TFS problem, and referred post gives a solution. I will write a more detailed blog post on this to explain why and how this works for TFS 2012.

The last year I have started to work more with Microsoft Dynamics CRM. As a result, I have been writing more posts on this topic. The logging functionality in CRM can be a bit tricky and not easy to undertand fully, and it seems like people have troubles with debugging tasks in Dynamics CRM. I have done alot of debugging the last year for many customer and I have gained experience worth sharing. I will definitly wrote more blog post on CRM, installation/deployement and CRM in general in 2012.

The blog post on report builder 3.0 is just a referral to the Microsoft information, but many referrrals have been directed from google and bing during the last year, so it seems like Microsoft have some work to be done SQL Server Reporting Service to get this working properly. I haven’t worked with Reporting Serice alot the last year, but I have done some report with Dynamics CRM and FetchXML.

The last top post is a post on Office automation in Office 2007/2010 on how to read and write values in Excel. This a definitily a topic that I can write more post on. I’m kind of nerd when it come to reporting and prefer Excel to Reporting Serivice. I have used Excel a reporting client as a result that I have been more involved with technical people on-site with customers than middel and top management.
