Office Dev PnP Web Cast – Introduction to Microsoft Graph for Office 365 developer

[Cross posting from blogs]

In this PnP Web Cast we concentrate on the Microsoft Graph and more specifically on how you can use that without in your solutions to access user or company specific information when you are developing solutions for Office 365. In the presentation part we concentrate on covering what's in the Microsoft Grah and how you can use that in general.

In the demo section Paolo shows what's currently provided from the Microsoft Graph in the v1.0 from the service end point and how you can access this information from MVC application. Demonstrated Visual Studio solution is available from the PnP sample gallery and is called asOfficeDevPnP.MSGraphAPIDemo.

We would recommend of having a look on following PnP Web Cast before this one, which explains the high level technical concepts around the Microsoft Graph - PnP Web Cast - oAuth and OpenID Connect for Office 365 developer.

Presentation used in this web cast is available from

Video at Channel 9.

What is Office 365 Developer Patterns and Practices (PnP) web cast series?

We have started this Office 365 Developer Patterns and Practices (PnP) web cast series to cover different patterns, practices and topics around development with Office 365 and SharePoint. Majority of the topics are valid for the Office 365 and SharePoint on-premises. Our objective is to release new around 30-45 minute long web cast each Monday with few slides and live demo on the covered topic. All web casts are published at the PnP Channel 9 video blog with additional references on the existing materials.

PnP is community driven open source project where Microsoft and external community members are sharing their learning's around implementationpractices for Office 365 and SharePoint on-premises (add-in model). Active development and contributions happen our GitHub project under Dev branch and each month there will be a master merge (monthly release) with more comprehensive testing and communications. Latest activities and future plans are covered in our monthly community calls which are open for anyone from the community. Download invite from

This is work done by the community for the community without any actual full time people. It’s been great to find both internal and external people who are willing to assist and share their learning's for the benefit of others. This way we can build on the common knowledge of us all. Currently program is facilitated by Microsoft, but already at this point we have multiple community members as part of the Core team and we are looking to extend the Core team with more community members.
