We are excited to announce that the Office Dev Center has gone through a major redesign and content overhaul, as we create a home for the Microsoft Office 365 developer audience. This site not only speaks to developers, but also to the technical and business decision makers by highlighting the opportunity and the getting started experience for building on Office 365. We also want to make sure that we provide the essential training and guidance for developers who are transforming solutions to the cloud.
We also heard the resounding feedback that developers had to constantly hunt and peck for key resources, such as the various events and recordings of our latest announcements and launches. Both upcoming Microsoft and third party events (where Microsoft is speaking), as well as the previous events are now listed on the Events page, in one central location.
Developers also wanted easier access to key sample code and apps that would make the development process easier. Training resources are key components of ramping and engaging developers, which were scattered across various properties—but are now centralized on the Office Dev Center.
Finally, nothing brings developers together and drives engagement and involvement than community resources, forums and discussions. The Office 365 developer community is a thriving and growing one—holding discussions on StackOverflow and the MSDN Forums, providing invaluable product feedback and suggestions on UserVoice, and engaging in architectural discussions on the Office 365 Technical Network.
We are looking for your feedback. Let us know about resources and features that you think would be valuable to include for our Office 365 developer audience.
