As we are on the verge of releasing Microsoft Office Project 2007 we want to help our customer and partner community by providing a forum for learning how to develop applications that communicate with both Project Server and Project Client.
There are three of us manning the Project Programmability blog, Patrick Conlan, Phil Smail and myself Chris Boyd. We are all Program Managers on the Project Team. The plan is to post samples that are requested and cool things we want to try out. So if you need some sample code or explanations on how to develop with the upcoming release of Project, drop by the Project Programmability blog and post a comment!
