Play Azure, Office 365, and SharePoint Online has REST endpoints with Mat Velloso


Mat Velloso explains how to create applications and services in Azure that get permission to access OTHER applications like SharePoint! We'll dig into the URL Structure of these services, see how to get events when things are updated, and figure out how ODATA and REST fit into these cloud building blocks.

    Wow, way to understate SharePoint there!

    I see what he is saying about everything being a list but SharePoint is an enterprise platform with numerous service applications from enterprise search to business connectivity services. Theres alot more to it than just a backing store with some lists.

    Anyway I'm kind of glad MS are going this way with SP and moving towards falling in line with the rest of the industry in their approach to web application architecture.

    Sometimes explaining things in the simplest possible terms helps :) But I agree there's a lot more there we didn't cover. Thanks!
