Microsoft Graph is to Office 365 what the REST API and CSOM are to SharePoint. It is a unified endpoint that provides access to a set of RESTful web services (the Office 365 APIs) that enable you to build applications that work with users, groups, calendars, files, tasks, people, notes and more. This session shows you how you can use free tools and resources to build an application that uses the Microsoft Graph. The topics discussed in the session include: using the API explorer, registering an app with Azure Active Directory, Visual Studio tooling, using the REST services, and using the SDK.

You will learn:

  • About Microsoft Graph
  • How to authenticate with Azure Active Directory
  • How to call the Microsoft Graph using C#, TypeScript, and JavaScript
