The Microsoft Excel product team is looking for Excel 2010 solutions that will help the millions of soccer fans around the world enjoy the 2010 World Cup - and get developers using Office 2010. Any application qualifies so long as it includes VBA code and prominently uses at least one of the new Excel 2010 features. Winners will receive some great prizes.
Get all the contest details from the team blog here, http://blogs.msdn.com/excel/archive/2010/05/03/microsoft-excel-2010-developer-challenge-soccer-edition.aspx. You must submit your entry by 11:59 PM Pacific Standard Time on June 4, 2010.
If you’re looking for guidance around VBA development, here are a couple links:

- Office 2010 Training Course on Channel 9 - https://channel9.msdn.com/learn/courses/Office2010/. The specific unit is Core Office Development which will be available on May 12, 2010 and will have a hands-on lab around VBA and working with data in Excel. This is a great resource for Excel 2010 development.
