Global Microsoft 365 Developer Bootcamp Cape Town

Details

Office 365 provides seamlessly integrated workplace productivity apps that connect and support employees. With more than 155 million monthly active users, Office 365 is the centerpiece of productivity, engagement, and collaboration for across thousands of organizations. Last year, Microsoft MVPs and User Group leaders led developer bootcamps in 41 countries and trained over 3,400 developers to help these organizations go even further with Office 365.

This year, we’re expanding our bootcamp series to become Global Microsoft 365 Developer Bootcamps. Microsoft 365 developers create intelligent, contextual apps that enhance productivity and streamline processes across Office 365, Windows 10, and Enterprise Mobility and Security. They create modern workplace experiences that use Microsoft Graph to connect to key organization data, integrate with tools like Microsoft Teams and SharePoint, deliver enhanced organizational security and compliance, and use the advanced platform capabilities of Windows.

The Global Microsoft 365 Developer Bootcamp is a free, one-day event with support from Microsoft and local community leaders.
