VSTO Course finished

Recently I finished a VSTO course in MVP Academy (full name of the course is "Using Microsoft Visual Studio Tools for the Microsoft Office system"). Actually I tried once before to start using VSTO to build a simple Excel template, but found that much more efficient to use old good VBA instead. Now, after I learned much more about VSTO, I become more optimistic about it, but not so much to start doing everything on it. There are still performance issues, few functionality issues, and finally VBA is just native staff so far for the Office. Anyway - there are few areas where it is good to use VSTO, for example if your template consumes webservice. Looking forward to see next, 2005 version of VSTA.

Here few links which could be useful if you start to look into VSTO:
