Dec 3 - VSTO Applications with John Wiese
Why start from scratch when you can stand on the shoulders of giants? Since the introduction of Visual Studio Tools for the Microsoft Office System (VSTO) developers are able to extend and expand the functionality of the most popular computer applications to build functionality their users need. In this presentation, we'll focus on the power and productivity of (VSTO) - a .NET Smart Client technology – to build an outlook add-in. We'll give you tips and tricks for designing and building smart client applications with VSTO, which allows you to create managed code applications with .NET languages including Microsoft Visual Basic .NET and Visual C#.  VSTO addresses some of the biggest challenges that Office solution developers are facing today, including separation of data and view elements, server-side and offline scenarios, seamless integration with the Visual Studio tools, deployment and updating. Join us for this eye-opening session and learn just how easy it is to build and deploy powerful applications with VSTO.
