leave a comment »

Matthew Dean, a developer for CTS will be presenting July 10th at the Birmingham Software Developers Association. Matthew’s subject will be Office Business Application development.

Office Business Applications (OBAs) are a new breed of composite applications that combine the Microsoft Office system with information and processes defined in the line-of-business (LOB) systems to help businesses unlock the value in their LOB systems. OBAs help to bridge the results gap that currently exists between line of business systems and end-user productivity tools by providing a seamless and integrated end to end user experience.

In his session Matthew will discuss the benefits of OBAs for developers and end users, the architecture of an OBA, and review the capabilities of 2007 Office System Interoperability with Visual Studio 2008 using Visual Studio Tools for Office (VSTO). During the review of VSTO’s capabilities we will dive into some code and demos that show some of the interaction with Word, Outlook, and Excel.

The meeting will begin at 6:30 pm at the New Horizons training facility in Homewood.
