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. Building such an infrastructure can be quite a remarkable challenge. Office 365 puts this power in the hands of an individual, and gives a large corporation the agility it needs. As a cloud-based turnkey solution, office 365 also offers significant opportunities for the developer, but truth be told, the Office 365 Developer story has matured and changed quite a bit over time. In this course, I illustrate the various dev choices you have as a budding Office 365 developer. I go through the history of these development choices as they have matured, while arguing for or against each such choice, and then I finally wrap up with working code examples of example applications targeting ASP. NET, cross platform desktop applications, cross platform mobile applications targeting Office 365 APIs. While this is an overview course, it does give you a decent enough starting point in exploring everything Office 365 has to offer. Armed with this knowledge and paired with your existing dev skills, this course should put you well on your way in developing compelling applications, extending and integrating Office 365. I hope you'll join me in this journey to learn Office 365 Development: Getting Started at Pluralsight.
