I had the privilege of presenting Building Instantly Recognizable Applications with the Microsoft Office System at the Windows/Visual Studio/SQL Server 2008 launch in Kansas City, KS today. I had a great time and am grateful to the outstanding audience for your attention and excellent questions.
As I am a man of my word, here are the resource links from my slide deck for those of you wanting to learn more about how to start developing applications for Office:
Also, I had several requests after my talk for my slide deck, so I've made it available for download it here.
If you were at the talk today and have comments or questions, please feel free to email me to post a comment below. Enjoy the materials and thanks again for attending the launch event today!
