With this week’s recent announcement about the consumer release of Office 2013 and Office 365 I thought it would be good to show you a few of the resources that are available for you as a developer to extend the Office platform.

Whilst the consumer edition of Office is already out in the wild the business editions are still in preview for now which means you have the opportunity to get ahead of the curve and start looking into ways in which your company can benefit from the Office app store.

The fastest, easiest way to get started creating any kind of app for Office or app for SharePoint is to sign up for Office 365 for developers. This customized Office 365 subscription includes all the tools and resources you need to start building and testing apps right now:

  • Office 365 Developer Site, customized for creating and testing apps

  • "Napa" Office 365 Development Tools, to create your first apps right within the browser

  • Office Professional Plus 2013 Preview

  • Exchange Online 2013 Preview

Click below to sign up for a trial during the Office 2013 Preview.
