Just a quick followup to my latest post, Microsoft just announced the availability of new HOLS that includes a dedicated lab for the SharePoint support in Visual Studio 2012 Update 1 which includes a practical step-by-step exercises over the following features:
1- Unit testing SharePoint development artifacts using SharePoint Emulator assemblies. Microsoft SharePoint Emulators basically intercept the calls to Microsoft.SharePoint dlls which reduce the testing/maintenace time of SharePoint development.
2- Intellitrace support for SharePoint Improvement.
3- Web and Load testing SharePoint applications.
You can download the lab directly from here.
It’s an honor that I have been selected again for the fifth year by Microsoft to receive the MVP award for 2012 in SharePoint competency.
Yesterday, I also received a mail from my MVP lead saying that I’ve been awarded with a custom disk to add to the MVP Crystal Wedge Award, this milestone disk was provided for achieving the MVP award for 5 years straight.
I would like to thank Microsoft and all the community fellows.

And finally congratulation for all the new and renewed MVPs for this year.
Last year, I spoke at the Expotech Conference in Palestine. They kindly invited me to speak again this year. The speaking tour will start on November 28 until the 1st of December and will take place in four universities in different Palestinian cities.
I will be giving talks about “Understanding Application Lifecycle Management and Custom Development”, “Understanding Cloud Platforms”, and “SharePoint Composite Development”.
So, if you are interested and it happens that you are in Palestine by then, you are more than welcome to join me at any of these events, I will be glad to see you there.

So, I published my speaking engagements for this year on this blog into a separate page:
I will be updating the schedule information whenever I have any new speaking engagement.
