TechEd Boston

Who else is going to be heading out to Boston next week for Tech Ed 2006? I’ll be out there for a couple days in the middle of the week. I’m presenting Wednesday from 5:30-6:45, so be sure to swing by and say hi.

Here’s the information on my session:

OFC324  Microsoft Office Open XML Formats

Day/Time: Wednesday, June 14 5:30 PM – 6:45 PM  Room: 253 ABC

Speaker(s): Brian Jones

Learn about the huge change that will affect the role Office documents can now play in business processes and solutions. Previously the binary formats had meant Office documents were treated more like a “black box,” but that is no longer the case, as these open formats allow documents to serve as a first class source of data as they travel through workflow and other business. Document content can now directly integrate with systems new and old. Generation of documents based on business data for up-to-date and accurate rich content is now possible throughout your own solutions. This session delves into schemas, solution code, and numerous examples.

Track(s): Office System

Session Type(s): Breakout Session

Session Level(s): 300

I hope I’ll get a chance to see you all out there. It should be a lot of fun!

    Any chance of the data being decoupled from the actual spreadsheet?  In the XML examples I’ve seen the XML seems to use the spreadsheet to give it its schema.  Wouldn’t it be more powerful to have the data completely separated?
