The last two days I have been part of the first ever European Office 365 Connect. As expected it was a great success with two days packed of really cool Office 365 stuff. I learned a lot on and got inspired by great speakers. Yesterday I had the opportunity to give a session myself on building Apps for SharePoint Online, named SharePoint Online Applification. In this level 200 session we looked into building your first App and some of the key takeaways from the SPC14 (hint: watch the sessions on Channel9). The most important part was looking into building apps based on the Application Model Samples and some of the key concepts behind those samples. The idea of configuring, templating and branding SharePoint Online sites based on code is pretty cool to see. Basically we focused on what you as a user can do to move away from sandboxed solutions (or farm solutions for that matter) and build your stuff according the App Model principles.
The slides can be downloaded from SlideShare if you like.
