The awesome new offering from the Excel team that gives developers the ability to create cool apps (like mashups) using an embedded Excel workbook on a host web page. Just using the Excel Services JavaScript API, a workbook stored on a public SkyDrive folder, and standard web technologies, you can create some really powerful apps that run in the browser (for example an app that combines Excel and Bing Maps to create a “Destination Explorer” mashup that shows stats on specific travel locations).

The web site is a one-stop-shop for learning about how to get started developing rich, interactive mashups on your web site quickly using Excel Web App and the power of Excel formulas for calculation. At the heart of the site is the Get Started tab that should have you up and ready to start coding in minutes. There are also tabs to learn more about the technology, connect with the Excel development community, and find more information about related Excel development technologies. But by far, my favorite feature is the Interactive Code Snippets page.
