PowerPoint template is a great feature, but it relies on you to fill in most of the information. With Magic Slide you can create a PowerPoint presentation very easily using drag-and-drop capabilities and your Office 365 data information already in place.
What it does
Creates PowerPoint presentation from web-based templates.
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
The combination and communication between the Client Side Scripting and the Server Side code.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Magic Slide is a proof of concept project developed specially for hack productivity. In a very short time we have a running app using the O365 API.
What I learned
Microsoft Office 365’s APIs opens a whole new world to us. As a developer you just need to embed this information in your app in a why it matters to your business.
What's next for Magic Slide
The next step will be to offer Magic Slide as a PowerPoint Add-In and continue develop more advance features but still easy to use for Non-IT people. And finally to change it from proof-of-concept software into a real product!
