VSTO Performance: Ribbon Reflection (Stephen Peters)

It is very easy to customize the Ribbon in your VSTO extension.  All you need to do is to add a Ribbon (Visual Designer) to your solution, and it will appear when your solution is run without needing to do any more work.  Behind the scenes, the VSTO runtime reflects through your entire addin assembly looking for Ribbon extensions to instantiate.  This reflection can cause a significant performance hit, especially on larger solutions.

Excel Services Setup and Getting Started

As part of an internal prototype I was working on recently, I had to set up a machine for Excel Services – and do this repeatedly as my prototype messed up the installation in various ways. I found lots of MSDN documentation that covered all aspects of setting up the base server OS, setting up MOSS, and configuring MOSS for Excel Services in a multitude of possible configurations – but what I wanted was a nice concise checklist so that I could reliably setup an E/S box whenever I needed to.
