Office Developer Conference


Are you coming to the Office Developer Conference next week in Redmond?  If so, be sure to check out the sessions on VSTO.  I’ll be speaking Wednesday at 4:45 in Kodiak and I will show the next version of VSTO working against Office 2007–my focus will be on showing the document customization features of VSTO and support for the new file formats. 


Andrew Whitechapel will talk about the new application level add-in support in the next version of VSTO.  KD–the general manager of the VSTO and VSTA team–will talk about the future directions for the VSTO and VSTA products.  John Durant and Darryn Lavery will show how to build some really cool solutions using VSTO 2005 and Office 2003.

    Hi Eric,

    I am very excited to learn the new Office UI and its extensibility through VSTO, especially about application level addins (custom task pane) and create my own ribbon tabs.  Unfortunately, I just heard of the ODC two days before it starts, so not able to join it.  But would the sessions be recorded and published?

    Also, I wonder if the ODC will give out preview softwares for people to test drive VSTO v3, and how those who are joining can get access to the software.  Any advice will be appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Chenggang
