I'm still alive!

It's been a while since my last post, I just looked and it's from September 2011, wow, that's along time...

Hopefully that's going to change, let's see ;-)

For now, I just want to highlight this great service from the guys at CloudShare, I just found out that they are offering a trial of a full Sharepoint 2013 environment, with 3 machines, AD+SQL+MOSS2013. And also 2010 if you want a quick access to a 2010 server.

The remote access is done via java applet, it's a bit slow and weird but it does the job, and if you don't have access to a 2013 RTM ISO, this is a nice way to get to know the platform.

I found about CloudShare, by the great SP guru Andrew Connell, and Critical Path Training. The post is from March 2012 so this isn't fresh news, but the 2013 part should be 'kinda' fresh :)

I haven't seen this type of service, at least for free (even for this small amount of time, 14 days for 2010 and 2 days for 2013) anywhere, and if there are more around, please do share!

If you do not care for the 2010 trial, just go to CloudShare site and create a trial account and fire up Sharepoint 2013, have fun!
