A common request for developers is to surface internal SharePoint data within the Office client applications. This allows users to interact with SharePoint list data (contacts, calendars, custom lists, etc.) in the direct context of their document editing experience. In this session you will learn the recipe for creating these kinds of solutions, and you will understand what kinds of benefits you can bring to users. You will learn to use the SharePoint client OM and the ADO.NET Data Services (REST APIs) to access SharePoint data and present them in add-ins. The session concludes with the deployment of the add-in to a shared location so it can be accessed centrally.
