A Professional Developer’s Intro to the Office Development Platform

Thanks to everyone attended my sessions at Tech Ed North America and at SharePoint TechFest. It was a lot of fun and everyone had great questions. This type of session is a challenge due to the plethora of overlapping technologies involved.  Hopefully, the session did as advertised:

 

Provide an understanding of the developer technologies provided by the Office platform and explain when to use each technology.

You will leave here with an understanding of when to use Office technologies like Open XML, VSTO, SharePoint Document Services (Word, Excel, Visio), SharePoint REST API & Client Object Model, Business Connectivity Services, etc., and how to build them.

I have attached the slide deck and the demo code to this post. As a I mentioned at the beginning of the session, the MSDN Office Developer Map is a great place to go to find content related to any Office Development task. Here is the link:

The session deck has even more links and I’ll post a ton of material so be sure and check those out as well.

The Asus Eee Slate is Compelling

I’m ready to get my hands on the the Asus Eee Slate. I think I could get into that. Channel 9 has a video that shows how Asuss + Office 2010 will work. It looks good to me.

It isn’t an iPad but I don’t want it to be. I want to be a table/slate-based PC. Highly portable and highly productive.

 

 

I wonder what impact the Eee Slate will have on Office Development.

When I have my grubby hands on the Eee slate, I plan to find out.
