Guest Blog by Microsoft UK’s Georgina Lewis: A Glimpse Into the 2010 UK Tech Days with Reed Shaffner’s Office 2010 Demo

As manager of the content and speakers for the UK Tech Days events, each year I liaise with a breadth of fantastic speakers that make these events what they are. This year's event was no exception, and one exciting area of conversation was Office 2010. 

At our most recent UK event, we saw the launch of Office 2010, boasting a number of improvements over Office 2007 – many of these requested by users and consumers. The video below is an excerpt from Reed Shaffner's demo of Office 2010. Reed, the Senior Product Manager for Microsoft Office, took the audience through improvements and additions to be found in Office 2010, particularly the addition of the Ribbon user interface to Outlook (and across a whole host of other applications), meaning that the UIs for both Office and Sharepoint are now identical, facilitating a more intuitive experience and the ability to add custom features.
