Yesterday was the MSDN DevBash. If you were there, thanks for attending. It was a standing room only event. And, looking back, I think the whole event was exceptional. I hope you all had a great time.
If you are looking for the code from my demo, it's in the next 5 or 6 posts on my blog, just scroll down! If you are wanting my PowerPoint slides, you need to email and for them. You can have them, I just don't want to post them here.
If you DID hear my presentation on using VSTO 3 in Visual Studio 2008 I would appreciate some feedback. I have a long way to go to be a great presenter, but I do love to present. I hope that came across. To those of you who came up to me after the presentation, thank you for your comments.
But please, leave me feedback.
There is a lot to VSTO and we just covered a bit. I hope you walked away with a sense that VSTO is real, Office applications are plausible, and development doesn't have to be difficult. I also hoped you had fun.
My goals when I present are to:
- Present ideas not just lines of code
- Code. Code. Code. Prove it really works.
- Move fast, fill minds with content.
- Show cleaver tips and techniques.
- Make it as fun. Don't let them fall asleep.
- Be relevant. Apply it to the real world.
