SharePoint Book Update

Just chiming in on where we stand on the book. I just finished writing up the conclusion chapter. I've updated the TOC (http://blogs.msdn.com/edhild/pages/pro-sharepoint-solution-development-combining-net-sharepoint-and-office-2007.aspx). The chapter is called "Realizing the Vision". In this chapter we spend some time on helping you identify if SharePoint is a fit for your custom application. And we look to the horizon to see VSTO "Orcas", LOBi for MOSS 2007, and the licensing of the Office UI. We also take a moment to review some helpful tools that will help you on your way to developing on the Office platform: SharePoint Solution Generator, WSS Extensions for VS.NET, and the ECM Tookit.

The InfoPath/Forms Services chapter is nearly done, so check back soon on that. I'm also half way through a smart document solution for Excel that allows users to capture list content from different sites so they can modify them in an offline scenario. This one requires VSTO 2005 for the document level project support so its developed with Office 2003. The solution still runs in Office 2007 of course. As soon as I am father along, I'll post some screen shots.

Plus updates from my upcoming conference. I am participating in two sesssions with Bob German. One is on features/templates/solutions and the other is on enhancing web content management. I'm sure a few goodies from my demos will make it up here shortly.
