Around the globe, 1 billion Office users spend an average of two to three hours each day in Office clients. This equates to more than 400 petabytes of data hosted in the Office 365 service. If you're a web developer, the Office 365 platform gives you the opportunity to reach these users with your business solutions, automate their day-to-day solutions, and even create completely custom solutions. In this session we'll explore how you can build your applications contextually directly into Office 365 using the Add-in Model. We will start with look at a few of the most interesting add-ins for O365, which you can start using right after this session, and wrap-up by building a few useful add-ins ourselves.

When flappy bird was removed from online stores, you may have been in a flap over where you were going to get your next flappy related fix. Well worry no more because, thanks to a free online tool called touchdevelop, you can now create your very own flapptastic app by simply following a few easy steps. (I personally like to make a flappy giraffe) What is TouchDevelop? TouchDevelop is an online app creation tool from Microsoft Research. Originally designed to develop Windows Phone 7 apps, the TouchDevelop Web App now allows you to develop apps for iPad, iPhone, Android, and Windows. It’s a browser-based programming environment, so all you’ll need is a device with Wi-Fi capabilities. This workshop is best for students in fourth grade and above. If you’re a bit younger, you are still welcome to join in the fun – but we recommend walking through this tutorial before attending: https://www.touchdevelop.com/app/#hub:follow-tile:firststepswithturtle Requirements: A device that can connect to the internet. We recommend a laptop, but if you have a tablet or a smartphone, those will work too!
