Introducing Office 2013

Introducing Office 2013


Last week, Microsoft announced the next version of Office, Office 2013. Office 2013 is not only redesigned and rebuilt but also has a new way to create, share, and distribute documents and files. Not only do all Office products (Word 2013, PowerPoint 2013, Outlook 2013, Access 2013 etc.) have a new and improved UI, they also have several new features. To get an idea of how much Office has changed, check out my article: What is new in Word 2013. Office now connects to SkyDrive to store everything in the cloud. Office 2013 also made sure that Office 365 has a major role to play.

The good part for developers is that Office 2013 now supports application development. Yes, that’s right. Now you can build applications for Office 2013. Not only you can build apps, you can also sell them on the Office Store. There are three different ways to build Office 2013 apps. Using HTML and JavaScript, using “Napa” Office 365 Development Tools and using Visual Studio 2012. Check out how to Start Building apps for Office and SharePoint

That said, we are pleased to announce a new section on Office 2013 on C# Corner. Some of our members have already started contributing on Word 2013, Excel 2013 and PowerPoint 2013 products. If you have not looked at Office 2013 yet, I recommend checking it out.

You may start learning Office 2013 and share your articles and blogs in Office 2013 on C# Corner.

BTW: There is a new font introduced in Word 2013 and it is Calibri Light. After the popularity of Sergio UI Light, I like this font. If your machine supports this font, this news is written using Calibri Light.
