The Microsoft Office 2007 suite of products is based on an open XML format called Open XML which allows you to work with documents directly instead of through the Office Component Object Models. This session demonstrates how to use the Open XML SDK to work with these new formats in managed code and how to easily manipulate documents using Visual Basic’s powerful and simple implementation of LINQ to XML.
Microsoft has decided to Co-evolve their premiere .NET languages, Visual Basic and C#. In this session you will gain insight into language team's strategy and direction for implementing new features.
