We are happy to announce new community driven CodePlex project called Office App Model Samples (AMS). This CodePlex project has been created to share different community created CAM or SP App scenarios for the benefit of the community. . We will be revising and enhancing the AMS samples and they should be considered just that, samples. We are working with the MSDN Content Publishing team to take the most impactful and useful samples that complete common customer scenarios and publishing them as "Solution Packs" of content as well as "Sample Packs" of sample code that has been reviewed by the Office365 team and blessed as a recommended way to approach these scenarios.
This package is released by a group of volunteers who are committed to continue further expanding this sample package in the future. Feel free to use the example code and scenarios in anyway you need within your projects or customer work. Notice thought that the code examples are provided as is and we don’t have any support model for them, so you need to take responsibility on using them case-by-case basis. Currently package contains mainly implementations for the SharePoint side, but we are looking to extend it with Office Apps as well.
Material is released in specific Office AMS CodePlex site in address http://officeams.codeplex.com. Will will continue updating this package with additional scenarios and examples based on the feedback from the community. Your input is extremely important for us to understand what kind of scenarios should be included.
Here’s the full list of involved persons in initial release to CodePlex. We also do have already few additional scenarios pending for additional persons, so this list will just keep on growing.
There’s quite a few different scenarions included in the package. These incldue SP hosted and provider hosted examples, which demonstrates the power of Cloud App Model or the SP App patterns in general. We will continue adding new examples in also in future.
Many of the examples scenarios assumes that you have following packages installed on your computer to get started. Most of them work directly against your Office365 tenant.
Please do give us feedback and input on the work which is released. We are committed on providing you examples and scenarios which will be beneficial cross SharePoint community. If you have scenario in your mind or need some additional guidance, please let us know in the discussions of the CodePlex project. We will try to address your input as fast as possible. We are also highly interested on any possible gaps you might be encountering with the remote APIs, so that we can provide input for the product development.
You can directly influence to the future development areas by sharing your feedback. Thanks for your input advance.
