Back in December (2011) I had the opportunity to work with a wonderful team to produce 24 videos that show off the features of Visio 2010.
The videos will be released on Microsoft’s Visio site, one per week, from January 10 until June 19 (2012). We hope you find them informative and entertaining!
What if you could click a button and have Visio notify you if a drawing was incorrect, had errors, or did not follow your company’s standards?
Visio 2010 offers this capability, and more information is coming out on how to use validation and develop custom rules every day!
You might have heard about David Parker’s new book about Visio 2010 Premium’s Rules and Validation for process diagramming.
We’ve just discovered that there’s a free chapter available online, so you can kick the tires before you buy!
Visio 2010 Premium introduces powerful mechanisms for validating diagrams to insure graphical and semantic correctness. Not only does this feature allow end-users to check and correct their diagrams, it enables developers to create custom rule sets to validate corporate- or discipline-specific diagrams.
David Parker’s new book: Microsoft Visio 2010 Business Process Diagramming and Validation explains Visio diagram validation, the APIs behind it, and helps you to build tools to make it all easier!
Oops! I posted Interview With a Visio Guy a bit too soon.
That article features a video with Visio MVP David Parker, who shares words of wisdom about his history of working with Visio, and why it is such a great platform for graphics-based solutions.
But by jumping the gun, I have inadvertently showered Mr. Parker with glory, at the expense of other Visio MVPs.
You see, the video was the first in a FIVE-PART series, called Visio: Drawing on Experience.
With the exception of radio personalities, I find like to associate pretty faces with people whose words I read, whose work I use, and whose endeavors I benefit from.
Recently, an interview with Visio expert David Parker was posted on Microsoft TechNet.
In the video, David tells some interesting, relevant stories about his history of working with Visio, and he shares some wise, eloquent words on the power of Visio as a visual tool for corporate desktop users, and as a platform for visual solution developers.
Plus, we get to hear him say; drooring!
David Parker, of bVisual Ltd, has created a really cool map of the UK’s counties and boroughs, and released it for download. Have a look at the article here: UK Counties and Boroughs Map Shapes for Visio.
