If you've ever built or considered building an application for Office, you're probably familiar with Visual Studio Tools for Office (VSTO). Now with the 2013 iteration of the Office platform, you can use the "App model" for Office applications. That's a good thing. Now you can use your front-end Web development skills to deliver Office add-ins. In this session, you'll learn how to build solutions that will give your Office users tools that can take advantage of the Office 365 APIs along with other endpoints such as SharePoint, integrated into the environment they use every day.

You will learn:

  • How to build apps for Office using the same skills we use for SharePoint and web development
  • How to use the power of Office 365 and SharePoint APIs to deliver contextually relevant information inside Office applications
  • How to extend our existing SharePoint infrastructure to enhance user productivity
