(Architects and Executives, too)
The Office Platform. Clients, servers, services and tools.
ODC 2008 is the premier event for Microsoft Office developers, bringing together architects, developers, industry technical experts, Microsoft insiders, and key partners in a public forum to redefine what it means to be focused on 2007 Microsoft® Office system development.
We have six keynotes by senior Microsoft executives. Of course, live code and demos will be the order of the day, and we will be presenting hot new sessions that bring together diverse topics, from composition to S+S, SharePoint to VOIP, OOXML to Silverlight, and everything in between!
We have 5 technical tracks, and 70+ breakout sessions and hands-on labs. And for the first time ever, we will have an Executive Track where analysts, Microsoft and industry executives will get together to learn the how and why of Office applications and the competitive advantage offered by them.

The Office Developer Documentation group has published over 270 articles since the RTM of the 2007 Microsoft Office system. The team has also published 152 downloads, and 153 videos. That is a lot of content! The MSDN Office Developer Center has many portal pages that help promote these content items by product or by content type. It really is challenging to add so much content to a portal! With all that new content, one of the biggest challenges is making sure we keep promoting Office 2003 content.
Coming from the field, I really understand that lots of companies are still using Office 2003, and as a developer, you may be faced with the need to find Office 2003 developer resources. The MSDN Office Developer Center has multiple Office 2003 resource pages organized by product and by content type. I thought you might enjoy having an interactive site map with links to all Office 2003 content resource centers on MSDN, so I built one for you:
I almost forget about Project 2003! Here are the links:
Speaking of interactive maps, you should check out the new interactive map with free Christmas images build by the Office Online Clip Art team.
