Office 365 was released to General Availability today with Steve Ballmer hosting the worldwide launch event in New York City. With this release, Office 365 (including SharePoint Online, Exchange Online, Lync Online and Office 2010 Professional Plus) can now be purchased directly from the Office 365 web site.
To coincide with the launch, I’m happy to announce an updated Office 365 Developer Training Course to help you get started building solutions for the cloud with Office 365. The course includes 8 sessions, over 12 hours of video and 19 labs as both an offline training kit as well as an online training course on MSDN.
The Office 365 Developer Training Course includes the following training units:
