My MSDN Web Cast on PowerPoint and Visio Solutions with VSTO in Visual Studio 2008

I am a huge Visual Studio Tools for Office Fan so when the VSTO team asked me to do a webcast for them, I said, “absolutely yes.”  What i didn’t realize was how hard it would be to build the demos.  There just is not a lot out there for Visual Studio 2008 VSTO 2008 right now, so I am glad to provide the code for the demos i build so that you can “run“ with them.  I can tell you that the genesis of the idea for this presentation goes to Paul Stubbs of the VSTO team.  He is a brilliant guy and a genuinely great guy and until i read his article in msdn magazine, i had pretty much given up on document-centric solutions for visio and powerpoint.  So, thank you paul for inspiring me to take your ideas to the next level. 

The links to the demos and the ppt deck from the MSDN Webcast I did on 12/14/07 Called, “Office Development in Visual Studio – PowerPoint and Visio Solutions“:
