Developing Apps for Office 2013

Hope you all are also super excited, as I am with Microsoft’s recent announcements for Windows 8 and Office 2013 Customer Preview 

This opens up a whole new world of opportunities for developers like you and me to develop and amaze a potential audience of a billion users.

The possibilities are limitless.

So, Let’s explore the possibilities for developers in the new Office (Office 2013 Preview).

Introducing a new class of apps

Wondering what apps can do?

How do app works anyway?

One can create apps for Office and SharePoint using the same tools and skills. The new development model is consistent between the two.

Develop apps as web applications. You can use HTML and JavaScript for client-side code, and your choice of language for server-side code, such as C#, PHP or VB.NET.

Apps can interact with Office thanks to a new JavaScript API, consistent across multiple Office applications.

Finally, publish and sell your apps through the Office and SharePoint Store or distribute IT-approved apps through an internal App Catalog.
