This blog post introduces the first in a series of screen-casts that are specifically for a developer starting development with Open XML for the first time. It is a project that I've been meaning to work on for some time, and I recently received the mandate that this should get done, so this is the start of it.
Return to the Table of Contents of this screen-cast series. In this video, I discuss the Open XML standard from a high level, discuss the resources that helped me get started, and point you to places to find additional resources. I've already recorded the second video, in which I discuss the various tools that you will want to be familiar with in order to do Open XML development. In the third and fourth video, I'll discuss the various typical development scenarios for Open XML. In the fifth video, I'll discuss my current thoughts on development approaches.
This is fantastic! It's so great to get the excellent instruction of an expert, at a beginner's level. Thank you so much.
Thank you very much, Eric. I hope you continue with the series!
