Lab description

The Microsoft 365 Developer Program gives you the opportunity to build solutions that integrate apps and business processes to enhance productivity in the modern workplace. The developer program includes a Microsoft 365 E5 developer subscription, pre-provisioned with Microsoft 365 apps. Microsoft lets you use this subscription to create your own sandbox and develop solutions independent of your production environment. You can build Microsoft Teams apps, Office Add-ins for Word, Excel, PowerPoint, or Outlook, or SharePoint Add-ins, using Microsoft Graph, the SharePoint Framework, Power Apps, and more.

In this lab, you will:

  • Sign up to the Microsoft 365 Developer Program
  • Explore the Microsoft 365 Admin Console
  • Install new features to the Microsoft 365 Developer account

Note: Due to this lab requiring the creation of a Microsoft 365 organization with an Admin Center, if you don't already have one you will need to provide a mobile phone number to pass the account creation process.
