I’ve just arrived back from the Microsoft Office Developer Conference in London which involved Microsoft employees talking about some of new advancements that you can expect to see in the 2007 Office System. The two days consisted of a mixture of hands-on labs, presentations and Ask the Expert sessions.
The feedback about the event from the attendees that I had the opportunity to talk to was very impressive. The combination of being able to hear about the technology and then try it yourself in a lab seemed to go down very well. The most popular labs that were undertaken were the SharePoint and InfoPath exercises which consisted of the WSS 3.0 Architecture, WSS Core Development, Working with InfoPath Forms and Creating Custom Workflows in InfoPath Forms.
It was really exciting to see both customers and partners getting excited about the different possibilities that these new technologies could bring to their business.
