If you have a story about how you are using SPServices that you would like to tell, ping me using the contact form. Your story doesn’t even have to include code, though people love to see examples. I’m always interested in what impact using SPServices may have had on your development philosophy, time to market with solutions, hiring practices, really anything that you feel SPServices has enabled you to do.
Data View Web Parts (DVWPs) are, to me, the most powerful feature in SharePoint. You’ve probably heard them called the Swiss Army Knife of SharePoint and there’s really very little that you can’t display with them if you understand how they work. But understanding the inner working of DVWPs requires knowledge of some pretty crufty concepts: CAML and XSL. In this series, I hope to demystify the XSL side of things a bit by explaining the most common XSL tags you’re likely to see in DVWPs and what you can do with them.
