This course teaches you common APIs to access Office 365 data from your applications. This lab-focused course gives you hands-on education enabling you to create your own Office 365 applications.
The Office 365 APIs enable you to access the Microsoft Cloud from all devices and platforms — including those running iOS and Android, PHP, ASP.NET and node.js, and Linux and Mac OSX — by connecting using an open platform. If you’re already familiar with programming in one of those platforms you’re already well on your way to integrating Office 365 into your applications.
“The most strategic developer surface area for us is Office 365“
– Satya Nadella, CEO, Microsoft Corp.
