I would be presenting at the Singapore Office UserGroup this coming Tuesday. Haha... As I'm trying to get into the habit of getting stuff done early, my slides are ready, far beyond the presentation itself. I'd keep up this habit to the best of my ability. :)

The biggest launch Microsoft has done for the past 10 years, since the advent of Windows 95, is happening again. If you haven't already caught launch fever, it's happening at Funan Centre the past weekend and coming again in March at Suntec City. I'm talking about the worldwide consumer launch of Windows Vista and Office 2007.
SGOG is participating in some of the activities, and our programme this month (and for the past few sessions) incorporate many of the new products in Vista and Office System 2007.
Event : Singapore Office User Group, Feb 2007
Venue : Microsoft, One Marina Boulevard, Level 22CF-12
Time : 1845h - 2045h
1845h Opening up the New Office File Format with OpenXML - Darren Sim, MVP ASP .NET
Darren is the champion of ASP and .NET programming with many public sessions for not just students but budding developers. Widely recognised as an XBOX and PC game developer, his passion is also in unlocking the potential of Microsoft products for the daily user. In his session, he’ll cover the new openXML concept for Office 2007 documents and what it means for the day to day running of an organization.
His demonstrations will include accessing data in Office documents via Visual Studio tools (VSTO) in Office 2007, programming simply plug –ins for Office 2007.
1930h Break (Refreshments provided)
1945h What's the buzz about SharePoint 2007: an End User's Perspective - Tan Tian-An, MVP Office Systems
We have seen the broad overview of SharePoint 2007 Beta 2 in our June 2006 session by Bernard Tham, an MS Technical Specialist. Now that's its officially launched, let's revisit the Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS) and take a closer in depth look at what's under the hood, its various components and technologies.
I'll showcase the various new sites types available and it's powerful capabilities for collaboration and expanding the resources and tools available to the modern office worker.
Once again, register for the event by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm your attendance at this event before Sunday 11 Feb. I’ll send confirmed attendees a friendly reminder a day before the event. Registration is FREE.
