The VSTO Team is at Tech Ed! 

I’m sure most of you are aware that Tech Ed is going on now, even as we speak, in Orlando, Florida. What you might not know, however, is that several members of the VSTO team are at the event. They are presenting breakout sessions and Chalk Talks; they’ll be at the Ask the Experts activity; and they’ll be at the product booth throughout the entire event.


So who is there?

Thomas “TQ” Quinn – Principal Architect

Paul Stubbs – Senior Program Manager

Christin Boyd – Customer Program Manager

Steve Fox – Customer Program Manager

McLean Schofield – Programmer Writer

Brian Goldfarb, Group Product Manager in the Developer Marketing Team, presented a great VSTO demo during Bob Muglia’s keynote speech on the first day of the event. You can see a video of that keynote in its entirety here. Brian comes out about an hour and 11-12 minutes into the session.


Be sure to drop by the VSTO product booth and ask for a copy of the new VSTO Fact Sheet. It’s loaded with cool information about VSTO, links to VSTO-related resources, and screen shots of the upcoming VSTO 3.0 in action.


A side note: I’m sure some of you who have been at previous Tech Eds are wondering, “Why aren’t you here, Mike?” The answer is that, sadly, this is the first Tech Ed I’ve missed in a long time. I was unable to attend this year’s Tech Ed because I’m scheduled to speak next week at the Dutch Dev Days 2007 event in Amsterdam, and then at the Irish VSTO User Group Tour the following week. But be of good cheer – I’ll be sure to raise a pint of Guinness on your behalf while I’m in Ireland! J


Until next time…
