If you've attended one of the Open XML Developer workshops that I and others have delivered in the last few months, you probably received a bunch of presentations, hands-on labs with complete source code, lab manuals, and demo files. We passed out that content as takeaway items for all the attendees, but now, even if you didn't attend one of those workshops, you can get a copy of all the workshop content by simply downloading it from the "Open XML Developer Workshop content" page on OpenXMLDeveloper.org.
The content includes several things:
Many people were involved in putting this material together. Some let me beg/borrow/steal their work, some contributed hands-on labs or sample documents, some created slides, some helped with fact-checking, some provided feedback after delivering the content themselves, and others were kind enough to bluntly say things like "that slide doesn't work." At the risk of forgetting someone, I'd like to thank (in alphabetical order): Brian Jones, Chris Predeek, Kevin Boske, Mauricio Ordonez, Peter Koen, Rick Jelliffe, Sanjay Kumar, Tristan Davis, and Wouter Van Vugt. Most of the useful information came from those guys, and any errors and omissions I handled entirely on my own.
If you're new to Open XML development, or just curious about how Open XML works, these presentations and labs will get you a well-rounded education in what's involved. Now if only we had a book or a set of videos that complemented all this content. :-) Stay tuned ...

If you are an Open XML fan (like me), I strongly recommend you check out the latest news shared by Doug
Doug, could you put together a single zip file to get this all at once please. Will be able to store and distribute.
Thanks - John
John, it seems that there's not an easy way to do that on the OpenXMLDeveloper site, because of a file-size limit on attachments. So I've created a 27MB ZIP file that contains everything, and it's available for download for the next 7 days or 100 downloads on YouSendIt here:
I just realized I forgot the Java HOLs in that ZIP file. Well, that's a small piece and it's right here:
Hope that helps.
