Course Overview
Hello. My name is Sahil Malik, and welcome to my course on Office 365 WebHooks and Connectors. Office 365 is certainly very useful, but it is not the only application users use. Frequently, custom business applications want to push information into Office 365 or be informed by Office 365 of critical events. This is precisely what connectors and webhooks allow you to do. Built on open standards, connectors let you push information into Office 365, and webhooks allow your applications to be notified when critical events occur. In this course, I start by introducing the basics of connectors and webhooks. I then discuss the dev story for connectors and webhooks. It's all built on open standards, simple HTTP POST calls. Even though my code examples use ASP. NET, you could replicate the functionality on any platform. The fundamentals are the same. At the end of this course, you will know all that is necessary to integrate your applications with Office 365 using webhooks and connectors. Thank you for watching.
