There are many ways to integrate custom code into Microsoft Office/365, but none provide the raw power, code simplicity, developer reach, or rapid development benefits of combining a proper Lisp with the Common Language Runtime (CLR). In this webinar we will explore several examples of both Scheme and Clojure as proper Lisps powering Microsoft 365 from the inside-out—on top of the .NET runtime.

Bob Calco, Chief Architect & Lead Developer at Apex Data Solutions, LLC, will give a sneak preview of features from the upcoming Professional Edition of Acceλerate for Microsoft 365, which will change how you think about “upsizing” and modernizing Office solutions to the cloud.

  • Lambdas as reusable business objects in Excel formulas—and SQL functions!
  • Database transparency vs the anti-pattern of storing data directly in Excel.
  • Writing macros/syntax extensions to build DSLs for Office solutions.
  • Office artifacts as portable, linked-data microservices to support data interoperability.
