I have just started my first serious development on the Office and SharePoint 2007 platform. The first challenge has been collecting together all the tools, SDKs, samples etc. that are available. This (I think) is the complete list of available tools and SDKs relevant to Office 2007.
Have I missed anything? Let me know.
