Eric White on Linq and Open XML. Eric White has been posting some great code samples lately, including a sample of functional programming with the Open XML SDK, how to transform flat data into a hierarchy with Linq, and a set of blog posts on Writing robust Linq to XML code that performs well.
Orcmid on Interop. Like Eric, Dennis Hamilton has been blogging prolifically this summer, with a series of posts in the last week on interop topics: Interoperability: The Experience of It , Interoperability: No Code Need Apply?, and Interoperability: What's the Self-Interest?.
PowerShell and Open XML. A few recent posts on working with Open XML documents from PowerShell scripts:
- Julien Chable has joined the Open XML Power Tools dev team, and he has an interesting post (in English, no less!) on Using PowerShell to Secure and Exchange Your Open XML Documents.
- Eric White covers the availability of a Power Tools binary installation from the folks at StaffDotNet.
- Antonio Zamora of StaffDotNet has a post on Applying a corporate style to Open Xml Documents by using Power Tools for Open Xml.
- I also saw through Eric's blog an interesting post from Doug Finke on PowerShell and Open XML.
Erika's Latest Project. Erika Ehrli is going to take a few months off to become a Mom! She'll be missed around here, but we're all very happy for her. I've heard rumors that Erika and Wouter (another new parent) have a bet going on whose kid will learn .NET development first.
