Ready to go public with our surprise gift for you :).
When you go to a conference, you always miss some sessions. It’s kind of hard to go to all of them, so you get to organize your schedule and pick some. Then you go to a lot of sessions and start learning all this new information, but you wish you could have some kind of outline or pointer to help you remember all this new information. So the session ppt slides are always nice to have. If you couldn’t make it to conference, even better!
Last year when I went to PDC I published in my blog links to all the Office & SharePoint track PPT slides. This blog entry came to be quite successful and people were delighted to find a pointer to the slides. Of course, after some months the slides from PDC are no longer available.
|Now, imagine if instead of finding some plain ppt slides, you could actually watch the session with audio and get to see the demos. I am sure you would be quite pleased. The idea got my mind spinning when I had a chance to attend the Microsoft Office Systems Developers Conference and a team of five people believing you would be delighted to find this recorded sessions on MSDN made it happen. Seems kind of easy, but this was a lot of work since we are publishing more than 3,600 hours of video. We are just stubborn and sure this content is worth all the hard work.|
Office offers a big set of programs, servers, services, tools and technologies that you can integrate to build solutions. The Office System Developers Conference featured more than 60 breakout sessions that cover little pieces of Office development and organized solutions in eight technical tracks. You can find the videos for each track here:
- Client Development
- Business Intelligence
- Solutions and Partners
- Enterprise Project Management
- Windows SharePoint Services Platform
- Enterprise Content Management
The videos are awesome! I am sure you will be very happy to watch them. However, keep in mind the following:
The videos are long. Some of them are over 70 minutes, so if you don’t have time to watch them online, you can right-click on the title and save them to your hard drive for watching later.
These videos are raw unedited footage of the actual conference sessions, so some of them start with some notes about evaluating sessions, shuttles, “shut down your cell phones” and so on. You will find notes on MSDN clarifying when the actual session begins (only for videos with long intros).
I hope you have fun watching them and learn more about what’s new in Office.
