Microsoft recently released some of the sessions for the upcoming Ignite conference that will be in Chicago the week of May 4-8, 2015. They also listed some folks as featured speakers & I'm humbled to be considered in this group! I'd like to think I'm just five people removed from Microsoft's CEO Satya Nadella, but I think that's because I lucked out with a name that starts with 'A'... hey, I'm one removed from Agnes Molnar too! :)
Seriously though, the day before the conference starts I am going to co-present a session with my good friend Scot Hillier. This is intended for anyone who's looking to become an Office 365 developer. You'll learn what it means to be an Office 365 developer and learn some technologies to have in your back pocket. In addition, you'll also learn how to work with the Office 365 APIs to create great applications for your customers and in your organizations! Here's the full billing for the session:
Office 365 Development On-Ramp
Are you an Office & SharePoint developer looking to come up to speed on Office 365 development with modern web technologies? Do you want to understand key technologies in order to get the most out of Microsoft Ignite breakout sessions? If you answered yes, then this workshop is for you. The Office 365 Development On-Ramp prepares developers to dive deep into Office 365 development. The morning session covers the Office 365 development prerequisites, including WebAPI, REST/OData, OAuth, jQuery, Knockout, & Angular. The afternoon session then builds on what developers learn in the morning & shows how to use these web development languages & technologies to develop apps that integrate with Office 365.
You can get the full details on the session on the Ignite website.
