Open XML blogging in 2007


It’s been quite a year for those who have been blogging about the Open XML file formats. Here’s a look back at some of the stories I remember best from this busy year …


January:



February:




March:



April:




  • The DIS ballot period begins on April 2, and technical committees worldwide begin reviewing the spec.

  • In April I deliver Open XML workshops in Munich, Kiev, and Beijing.

  • The PHPExcel API for Open XML gives PHP developers a set of tools for Open XML development, thanks to the work of Maarten Balliauw and Jakub Vrana.

  • Sam Hiser posts a joke that some folks don’t get for a few months.

What a year. If 2008 is just half as busy, and Open XML gets just half as much attention, and I travel just half as much as I did in 2007 … that will be plenty.


Happy New Year, everyone!

    Great list with some nuggets that I missed the first time.  I don’t think I’ll comment on any of the items here.  The list is a keeper and expands my collection a fair bit.

    Seeing that I made the list twice, I will now save up further posts (there are some in honored positions of my backlog) until 2008, just in case your life is not hectic enough.

    Happy New Year!  May it be joyful, rewarding and successful with pleasing results for OOXML too.

  2. Open XML a été un sujet assez chaud cette année, et pour preuve les deux blogs du réseau Codes Sources

  3. Gutes Neues Jahr  2008.!
