Microsoft releases the Office App Model Samples

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Microsoft released over at Codeplex the AMS (Office App Model Samples). It’s a collection of sample code and documentation for different app scenarios, this is the recommended  way of doing these scenarios on Office365 (and on-premise SharePoint) .

I have had a quick look at some of the samples and this looks very good. There are very good code samples and what looks to be unusually good documentation 🙂

You should take a look at the samples at Codeplex and there is also a good PowerPoint presentation there describing the different samples. All in all I’m impressed by the  quality of the documentation.  Very good work by the people involved.
