HOW TO: Debug Office Add-in In Office Clients Without Visual Studio

In the Office 365 – monthly Dev Digest for October Jeremy Thake, technical product manager for the Office 365 Dev team, mentioned that Microsoft just released six hours of on-demand video training for the Property Management Code Sample in the OfficeDev repository.

Since I created these training videos I thought I would take a moment to let you know what they are all about.  There is some really great stuff in this code sample that shows you how to do all sorts of things with Office 365 in web applications and in mobile applications.  The code is all very well factored so you can copy and paste from it to create your own Office 365 solutions quickly!

We continue to work on updates to the application to ensure the code always works with the latest changes and enhancements to the various Office 365 APIs and services.


First, you will find two videos that describe how all of the components which make up the code sample are provisioned to Office 365. In the code sample, we provision 36 different things to the Office 365 tenancy and AAD! Given the fact the platform was just released this is pretty amazing and shows how robust the APIs already are.

Next, you will find two videos that walk you through how to make a native Android application that authenticates to AAD and uses Office 365 services including SharePoint lists, document libraries, OneNote, Office 365 Groups, Exchange, the Office 365 Video Portal, and much more! This series of videos starts out by showing you how to start from scratch, then it jumps into the Property Management Code Sample and shows you all of the code that is used for authentication and interacting with all the Office 365 services.

This two part video series follows the same pattern as the Android series. It also discusses how to use the Microsoft Office REST Client for iOS (MS ORC) to access Office 365 REST Services from native iOS applications.
