Topic: Integrating WPF & WCF into Your Office Business Applications

This session will highlight many of the ways that the Windows
Presentation Foundation (WPF) and the Windows Communications
Foundation (WCF) can be leveraged in Office applications built with
Visual Studio Tools for the Office System (VSTO).

Visual Studio® 2008 introduced an array of new features aimed at a
wide range of Office solution types. With Visual Studio 2008, you can
build solutions that incorporate the native capabilities of the Office
client applications (like Outlook) combined with the sophisticated UI
capabilities of WPF that's connected to remote data and services via
WCF and use the RAD features of LINQ to manipulate that data. These
new technologies provide opportunities for building powerful solutions
with functionality that was previously difficult or impossible to
Now that Office has evolved into a true development platform, office-
based solutions are becoming increasingly sophisticated, less document-
focused, and more loosely coupled. This session will show you how easy
it is to build robust solutions that leverage the latest technologies.
