My name is Xiaoying Guo, and I’m a program manager on the Microsoft Office Developer Tools team in Visual Studio. On June 3, I’m giving a talk on building apps for SharePoint using Visual Studio 2012. The talk is organized by the .NET Developers Association and will be held in Building 40 on the Microsoft Redmond campus. You can find more information about the session on the .NET Developers Association site.

If you have heard about the new app model in SharePoint 2013, but you are wondering how you can actually build apps, this is the right session for you. In this demo-heavy session, you will learn how to best use Office Developer Tools for Visual Studio 2012 to build great apps for SharePoint. We will explore the SharePoint development experience and see the first-class support for common app features, including client Web Parts, custom actions, remote event receivers, and more. You will also learn how to use Team Foundation Server (TFS) for apps for SharePoint continuous integration.

I’m looking forward to seeing you there!
