Simon Murphy (AKA Smurf) has organised another one-day conference for UK Developers in London on January 25.
The last one was a great chance to learn some awesome stuff, meet some fellow Excel developer geeks and consume some beer, and this one promises to be even better
My session is called VBA to C : Pratfalls and Perils
|15:30 – 16:30||VBA to C : Pratfalls and Perils
– Stories based on a c++ newby’s efforts to convert 10K lines of VBA UDFs to
– Demonstrations and examples using Visual Studio 2010 and Planatech XLL+
If you want to know why I embarked on this somewhat perilous journey see my post on UDF Technology choices.
The idea of this session is very much to approach C++ XLLs from the viewpoint of a VBA developer.
I aim to start with some simple UDFs, then cover some of the more idiotic mistakes that I keep making,
and progress to slightly more sophisticated stuff that demonstrates how to use some of the XLL+ wizard features.
If there is time I will show how relatively easy it turned out to be (once I figured out HOW) to do multi-threaded UDFs with shared memory …
So sign up and come along for a great time and some really interesting and important stuff!
