  • Blog Post: Populate your Office 365 Developer Tenant with sample data

    An Office 365 Developer Tenant is a great resource for developing with the Office 365 REST APIs . It gives you a place to register your app, and a user to test against. However, you have to manually add data to your user’s mailbox or OneDrive. Today we’re excited to announce a sample Windows...
  • Blog Post: Ruby gem for Mail, Calendar, and Contacts APIs

    Today I published a new Ruby on Rails sample, the Office 365 VCF Import/Export Sample . It's basically a simple tool that allows a user to export contacts from her Office 365 mailbox to vCard files, or import vCard files into her contacts. But wait, there's more! Instead of implementing the Contacts...
  • Blog Post: Office 365 APIs and Node.js

    When we launched the Office 365 APIs , the Visual Studio folks released some very helpful client-side implementations of these APIs, making it much easier to get started. One of these implementations, the Microsoft Office 365 APIs Client Libraries for Cordova Applications , got a lot of attention from...
  • Blog Post: Using the Calendar API in PHP

    In the same spirit as my Python experiment , I decided to give PHP a try and see how far I could get with the Office 365 APIs. The same disclaimers apply: I am a total PHP neophyte. I'm certain that my code is probably non-optimal, but hey, it's a learning experience! The idea I had this idea for...

  • Blog Post: Ruby on Rails and Office 365 Tutorial

    I published a quick tutorial on writing your first Office 365 API app using Ruby on Rails . The tutorial takes you from creating a new Rails project to listing the contents of the user's Inbox using the Mail API . I'd love to get feedback on the tutorial. What do you think of the format? Does it go into...
  • Blog Post: Client Credentials Flow for Mail API in Python

    Matthias announced support for the Client Credentials flow in the Mail, Calendar, and Contacts APIs a couple of weeks ago, and since then, we’ve had a lot of questions about implementing it. Matthias published a great sample using .NET and ADAL , but many of you have asked for details on implementing...
  • Blog Post: Building Daemon or Service Apps with Office 365 Mail, Calendar, and Contacts APIs (OAuth2 client credential flow)

    Device and Web Server applications usually require a user to sign-on and consent to allow the application to access and work with their information in Office 365. The underlying protocol to gain access is based on the OAuth2 authorization code grant flow. I described this a while ago in one of my earlier...
  • Blog Post: OAuth2 in action with the release of Office 365 Calendar, Contacts and Mail

    I bet everyone is equally excited like me to have the Office 365 API out of preview and generally available to start building super cool apps. For those entrepreneurs that worked with us through the preview, my colleague Rohit Agarwal posted a blog that summarizes the changes done to the Calendar, Contacts...
  • Blog Post: Zapier’s Office 365 API Journey

    Since we first heard about the new Office 365 product suite, we at Zapier have been eager to dig into the APIs that would accompany it. So earlier this year, when the Office 365 APIs preview launched at http://dev.office.com/ , we jumped at it! For those of you who aren't familiar with the Office...
  • Blog Post: Using OAuth2 to access Calendar, Contact and Mail API in Office 365 Exchange Online
