The Office 365 APIs allow you to easily integrate Office 365 services into your apps in a consistent way. You can access user data like calendars, documents and more using REST APIs and standard OAuth flows from any platform. The Office 365 API Tools for Visual Studio make it super easy for developers to access the services via .NET or JavaScript client libraries. These tools are currently in preview.

I've been meeting up with team members building these tools and have been watching them progress through this preview period. In this interview I once again sit down with Chakkaradeep Chandran (Chaks), a Program Manager on this project. This time we talk about working with Xamarin in Visual Studio and building an Android app that connects to your Office 365 contacts.
