We’re thrilled for the //build and Ignite 2015 conferences to kick off. We’ve spent the months since TechEd Europe in Barcelona last October preparing and pulling together tons of great new capabilities, content and experiences, which we will share with Office developers at these two conferences. Let’s dive into what we’ve cooked up for our spring release.

We’ve crafted the sessions for //build and Ignite to cover the new capabilities, as well as provide guidance about how to get started building for Office 365.
