A couple of weeks ago I blogged about the treasure map for Office developers that we were building and I am glad to announce that we finished two weeks ago the poster version and it's ready to download! This is the third poster of the 2007 Office System Document: Developer Posters download family.
The Developer Map for the 2007 Microsoft Office system helps developers visualize the different programs, servers, services and tools that will help them build solutions. You can drill down to each product and technology and learn about new features, objects, Web services, namespaces and schemas requiered to extend Office. There are more than 50 persons who worked to make this possible with the motivation of building a cool tool to evangelize Office. Based on the fact that Office 2007 is more than you think, we thought this was a great way to help developers understand the bigger picture and learn how Office products and technologies relate to each other.
The goals of this poster are:
BTW, if you have plans to attend Dev Connections in Las Vegas or Tech Ed Barcelona, you should visit the Office booths. We are sending nicely printed copies of this poster. I encourage you to get one (or more) b/c there's a lot of text and it looks better if you print it on a bigger piece of paper.
I can't describe how happy I am because of this poster. I enjoyed working with all the people who made this possible, but what makes me happier is that I know this will help other developers understand quickly what took me months to figure out.
Cheers to Office and the whole galaxy of developer technologies it represents!

The map for the 2007 Office system was extremely popular at our TechEd Boston conference back in August.
A while back, I mentioned a "Developer Map for the 2007 Microsoft Office System" poster that Erika was

Note on TYPO: No matter how many tech review and editing passes we did, we managed to print the poster with a little bug.
Under Excel 2007, SLL interface should be XLL interface.
Just wanted to clarify before you realize that SLL is an imaginary interface.
Nice work on getting this out.
This can be a very valuable learning tool for putting things in perspective with folks who want to get on board with MOSS 2007
thanks, looks good!this is going to to be a print out then a photocopy on to A3 i think! ;-)
this is a MUST have in any seriuos Office Developer Wall!
great idea thanks!
Nice effort - should be very useful.
But the process: Download a Setup exe (that always crashes creating the directory on my laptop if I just go Next Next Next) that installs a PDF? Classic Microsoft techie overkill - thanks for the entertainment...
You are absolutely right. We had to package the posters with an EULA, for that reason, we had to place a pdf file inside a setup. After long discussions and changes in the download center we were finally allowed to publish the posters as pdf files:
I compiled my top ten list of resources for architects and solution developers that plan to start building solutions using the 2007 Microsoft Office system (including SharePoint of course) and VSTO.
Thanks Eric for pointing this one out: With the recent launch of 2007 Office System, it's always
