Build better Office and SharePoint apps using ‘Napa’ Office 365 development tools

Hey, developers, we’ve made some improvements to the “Napa” Office 365 Development Tools kit since it first launched in July 2012.

Before giving you the 411 on some of those improvements, here’s a little background on “Napa,” according to the Apps for Office and SharePoint blog: “Napa” Office 365 Development Tools is a developer experience centered on the idea of developing in the cloud. By acquiring a developer Office 365 account, you get access to a development environment that’s available from your browser and the ability to create projects you can save and open later. You can virtually code from any machine without having to install or download anything.

The updated version of “Napa” includes improvements in the user experience, new templates, improved support for task pane apps for Office, a Mails app activation rules editor and new social features.

For the rest of this story, read this post over on the Apps for Office and SharePoint blog.
