  • Blog Post: VSTO Book News

    I am pleased to announce that my co-author Eric Carter has made significant updates to our VSTO book . (Though I notice with chagrin that one of the changes is that the title is much shorter than it ought to be .) It is not yet available in bookstores but will be soon. The new parts of the book (which...
  • Blog Post: Yet More Book News

    It's a bookish day apparently. I am pleased to pass on news of the availability of the book Eric Carter and I wrote about VSTO, now in Chinese. Here is Jie Wang holding a copy of the original C# book and the VSTO开发指南 Visual Basic book: Many thanks to Jie Wang, Mei Liang, and everyone at Addison Wesley...
  • Blog Post: Recent Book News, Part Two

    Two additional quick notes about books: I am also pleased to announce the availability of the C# 3.0 Cookbook , for which I was again lucky enough to be one of the technical reviewers. Many thanks to the authors for giving the shout-out to this blog in their front matter. "Real" cookbooks tend to provide...
  • Blog Post: Visual Studio Tools For Office: Using Visual Basic 2005 with Excel, Work, Outlook and InfoPath

    Eric Carter and I are excited to announce that the Visual Basic edition of our book about Visual Studio Tools for Office is now available. I'd like to give a big thank-you to everyone who put their time, energy and enthusiasm behind this project, particularly my co-author (who, as always, did most of...
  • Blog Post: Book Signing at the PDC

    It's a week until PDC! Very exciting. Unfortunately I'm not going this year but my coauthor and erstwhile lead Eric Carter will be there, along with Misha Shneerson and Andrew Whitechapel . He'll be talking about VSTO 2.0 (the about-to-be-released product) and you can also see a sneak preview of early...
  • Blog Post: Fabulous Adventures in C# and VSTO

    I am incredibly excited, but a little sad too. 1295 days ago I attended a rather hastily-called meeting in which the senior management of the Visual Studio team announced that the Microsoft Office Developer, VBA and Scripting teams would be reorganized into a new team dedicated to the proposition...
  • Blog Post: A Face Made For Email, Part Two

    One year ago this week I was the Channel Nine guinea pig -- I'm still not sure why, but for some reason The Scobelizer and his cohort chose me to be the first guy interviewed for their project. (Probably because I'm mostly harmless.) Channel Nine has succeeded tremendously, and I'm very pleased to have...
  • Blog Post: VSTO Web Cast On Tuesday

    I've just now learned that my colleagues Andrew Jewsbury and Mohit Gupta will be talking about the recent beta release of our product -- Visual Studio Tools For Office -- July 27th in a web cast. Mohit and Andrew are responsible for much of the design and implementation of key portions of VSTO, so this...
  • Blog Post: Plumbing the Depths of .NET For Office

    My lead Eric Carter has started blogging about the work we're doing on VSTO2 . I'm excited that he's taken the plunge into blogging about this stuff for two reasons. First, no one has a broader or deeper technical understanding of the plumbing underlying the programming model that we're designing...
  • Blog Post: VSTO 2.0, coming soon to an IT department near you

    I know I've been talking a lot about the COM script engines -- how hopelessly twentieth-century! -- for the last few months. Coworkers who don't work with me directly every day are often surprised to learn that I haven't been on the script team for about two years now. I've been awfully busy over the...
