Acknowledgments

Acknowledgments

Though there are only two names on the cover, no book of this magnitude gets written without the efforts of many dedicated individuals.

Eric Carter would like to thank his entire family for the patience they showed while “Dad” was working on his book: Jason, Hayley, Camilla, Rand, and Elizabeth. Extreme thanks are due to his wife Tamsyn who was ever supportive and kept everything together somehow during this effort.

Eric Lippert would like to thank his excellent wife Leah for her support and tremendous patience over the many months that it took to put this together.

Many thanks to everyone at Addison-Wesley who made this book possible. Joan Murray, Jessica D'Amico, and Elizabeth Zdunich provided expertise, guidance, encouragement, and feedback through every step of the process. Stephane Thomas cajoled us for years to get a book proposal together. Thanks are also due to the production and marketing teams at Addison-Wesley, especially Gina Kanouse, Marie McKinley, and Curt Johnson.

A huge thank-you to everyone at Microsoft who over the last three years contributed to Visual Studio Tools for Office. Many people from different disciplines—design, development, education, evangelism, management, marketing and testing—dedicated their passion and energy toward bringing Office development into the managed code world. We could not have written this book without the efforts of all of them. One could not ask for a better group of people to have as colleagues.

A considerable number of industry experts gave the VSTO team valuable feedback over the years. Many thanks to everyone who came so far to give so much of their time and expertise by participating in Software Design Reviews and using early versions of the product. Their suggestions made VSTO a better product than the one we originally envisioned.

We especially thank Andrew Clinick and Hagen Green for their important contributions to this book.

Many thanks to our technical reviewers, whose always-constructive criticism was a huge help. They helped us remove a huge number of errors in the text; those that remain are our own. Thank you, Rufus Littlefield, Siew Moi Khor, Stephen Styrchak, Paul Vick, Paul Stubbs, Kathleen McGrath, Misha Shneerson, Mohit Gupta, and Vernon Hui. And finally, we'd also like to thank KD Hallman, Ken Getz, Mike Hernandez, BJ Holtgrewe, and Martin Heller for their ongoing insight and support.
