Perth .NET UG Meeting: Developing Office Add-Ins with VSTO in Visual Studio 2010 - with Jake Ginnivan

Join us at the Perth .NET User Group Thurs, April 8th where Jake Ginnivan will build an application from the ground up using VSTO. Microsoft Office offers a platform that provides many possibilities for application development using managed code. In this talk Jake will describe what VSTO is, why to choose it as a platform and how you can build a successful application from the ground up. In addition, he will cover the pitfalls of COM Interop, ways to avoid performance and memory issues, structuring your solution to enable it to be fully unit testable, the common extensibility areas of outlook, using WPF as your presentation platform within Outlook, deployment using ClickOnce, dealing with ClickOnce update issues and the patterns you can use to make it all fit together. To demonstrate these techniques, Jake has built an Outlook add-in using Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4.0, which synchronises his Facebook events list into Outlook.
