Excel spreadsheets are used practically everywhere — they are the cornerstone of many applications and businesses. Excel Services revolutionizes the spreadsheet world by introducing server-side spreadsheet calculation and rendering with unparallel Excel fidelity. This book will guide developers through understanding what Excel Services is, how to work with it, and how to develop applications on top of it. It is rather embarrassing to say, but it took me a whole three years to understand just how useful Excel Services is. It was after I gave (what I thought was) a well-received demo at Office DevCon in Redmond with Danny Khen, a program manager on the Excel Services team. I remember going through the parts of the demo: One of the first things I showed was how to extract a column of data from an Excel worksheet and utilize it in an ASP.NET application. The crowd applauded, which threw me off-guard because I thought I hadn’t really gotten to the cool part yet.
