Another talented Ensynchian joins the blogosphere

My colleague Joe Zamora, a talented developer, who has been instrumental in helping us advance our knowledge of custom workflows, has just launched his own blog: CShark.

His first post is on how to "Generate AccountName in ILM2 custom workflow activity" and it came in response to a question in the ILM 2 connect forum entitled:  Custom Workflow Activity to Generate samAccountName.

Go Joe Go!
