Course Overview Hello, my name is Sahil Malik, and welcome to my course, Office 365 Development: Getting Started. I have been a Microsoft MVP for 10+ years, author of many books, speaker at many conferences, and a developer for all my life. Information workers these days are mobile, spread across the globe, have terabytes of data to manage, and need to communicate and find things instantly securely.
