Office Dev: Office 2016 for developers


Last week we announced the release of Office 2016. Next interesting stuff pops in our mind is that what’s new in Office 2016 for the developers. I want to mention few of them here:

- New names for apps for Office and SharePoint – I blogged about this earlier, New name for Apps for Office and SharePoint? Office and SharePoint Add-ins
- Add-in commands for mail - Overview of add-in commands for mail
- Manifest for add-in commands - Create a manifest for add-in commands
- Provides access to properties for Office theme colors - Context.Theme property 

So the next question would be where to get started? Visit http://dev.office.com, check for http://dev.office.com/getting-started/addins and try it out.

In addition, you can refer the Office Dev blog post which talks more about it & make use of it.
