Channel 9 Interview: Building an Outlook Mail App using the “Napa” Office 365 Development Tools

If you haven’t heard, the new Office & SharePoint 2013 Developer Preview has a brand new development model that should make it a lot easier and flexible to build consumer and enterprise applications running within Office & SharePoint. Based on web technologies like HTML5, XML, CSS3, JavaScript, and REST APIs, you can use your existing knowledge of these web technologies to quickly build your apps. What’s cool is these apps can not only run in the desktop versions of Office, they can also run in the web app versions.

A Professional Developer’s Intro to the Office Development Platform

Thanks to everyone attended my sessions at Tech Ed North America and at SharePoint TechFest. It was a lot of fun and everyone had great questions. This type of session is a challenge due to the plethora of overlapping technologies involved.  Hopefully, the session did as advertised:

 

Provide an understanding of the developer technologies provided by the Office platform and explain when to use each technology.

You will leave here with an understanding of when to use Office technologies like Open XML, VSTO, SharePoint Document Services (Word, Excel, Visio), SharePoint REST API & Client Object Model, Business Connectivity Services, etc., and how to build them.

I have attached the slide deck and the demo code to this post. As a I mentioned at the beginning of the session, the MSDN Office Developer Map is a great place to go to find content related to any Office Development task. Here is the link:

The session deck has even more links and I’ll post a ton of material so be sure and check those out as well.
