If you are a Microsoft Visio 2010 Premium Edition user or developer who wants to get to grips with both the basic features
of Visio 2010 and the new Validation Rules in this edition, then this book is for you. A working knowledge of Microsoft Visio,
and optionally .NET for the add-in code, is required, though previous knowledge of business process diagramming is not necessary.
More experienced Visio users will gain valuable knowledge for building add-ins and creating and publishing rules.
If you want to achieve results from Visio 2010 beyond the ordinary out-of-the-box features, then this book is ideal for you.
Although this book covers the Premium Edition, much of the book is still useful if you are a Visio 2010 Standard Edition or
Professional Edition user.
