Office DevCon 2008 – Nov 1-2
Was just informed this morning, by Graham Seach, that the Office DevCon 2008 site has gone live. If you’re into office development (that’s Microsoft Office…VSTO FTW!!!) then this is the event of the year that you don’t want to miss.
Speaker opportunities are still available so if you have something funky to show off then this is the place to do it at.
Office DevCon is an annual community-driven conference that allows Microsoft Office developers and power users to come together in one location to hear expert speakers present on a wide range of Office-related topics.
Over 2 days, you will hear presentations on advanced core Office technologies for Office 2003 and 2007, including Word, Access, Excel, SharePoint, PowerPoint, Groove, InfoPath, OneNote and Outlook. We may also be able to provide some previews of Office 14, the next version.
The inaugural Australian event was held in November 2007, and was an unprecedented success - check out last year's programme at http://www.block.net.au/devcon/programme.htm. The 2008 event has already generated an extraordinary level of interest from many local and international speakers and organisations, and promises to ‘raise the bar’ even higher.
This year, the format will be even more exciting. We’ll still have our popular deep-dive sessions and hands-on labs, but we’ll also have RapidFire and OpenSpace sessions to provide greater opportunities to learn about Office technologies and techniques, and to interact with world-class experts.
It is free to attend Office DevCon, but accommodation and transportation costs are up to you, as are the cost of your meals.
To enable the Office DevCon 2008 organisers to arrange event catering and seating, you must register to attend the two day event by completing the registration form - http://www.officedevcon.com.au/registration/default.aspx.
For a bit more info you should head over to the Office DevCon site now (www.officedevcon.com.au).
The agenda has also been published (naturally, if new speakers are added, this agenda will change): http://www.officedevcon.com.au/agenda/default.aspx
