The launch of Windows Vista and the 2007 Microsoft Office System is just around the corner! Our Developer Advisor team will be coming across Canada to present on the latest developer innovations in the .NET Framework 3.0, the Office 2007 APIs and Windows SharePoint 2007.
The day will start with a keynote and then be followed by a number of tracks, including a developer track. The dev track will include the following sessions:
Session 1 – Overview of Windows Vista and the 2007 Microsoft® Office system
The more you learn about the strengths of the Windows Vista and the 2007 Microsoft Office system, the more you’ll begin to realize the wide array of solutions that can be built based on these groundbreaking products. We’ll showcase the key features of each platform, and show you what makes them so compelling for solution development. We’ll also cover a broad set of tools available across both platforms to help you develop more quickly and efficiently.
Session 2 – Bringing clarity to your existing applications
Custom application development is very common in many organizations. In this session, you’ll learn how the new .NET Framework 3.0 Windows Presentation Foundation enables you to develop .NET-based applications using a whole new level of clarity. Your applications will continue to work on existing platforms (such as Windows® XP), but really shine using the new graphical engine of Windows Vista. Learn how to get an edge over your competition, and build applications that graphically stand out from the rest of the pack.
Session 3 – Bring new meaning to productivity of the 2007 Microsoft® Office system
Tapping the power of the Microsoft Office system as an application platform can be a challenge. In this session you’ll find out how the new Visual Studio Tools for the Microsoft Office system is easier to use and provides more powerful APIs that allow you to control and extend functionality of the Microsoft Office system in applications such as Microsoft® Office Word 2007 and Microsoft® Office Excel® 2007.
Session 4 – Extend the power of your current applications
Creating interoperable systems, whether on different platforms or tying in legacy applications can be challenging. With the new .NET Framework 3.0 Windows Communication Foundation and Windows Workflow Foundation, you’ll be able to build applications for Windows Vista and Windows® XP Service Pack 2 that enables a new level of integration that will blow you away with its simplicity and power.
Session 5 – Tour of Microsoft® Office Sharepoint® Server 2007
Managing information in different formats inside your organization can be quite complex and require a lot of effort.
