Here you can find a nice tutorial Introducing “Napa” - Office 365 Development Tools

and Introducing the new Office cloud app model

and SharePoint & Office 2013 Developer tools for Visual Studio 2012 (link)…look in the Tools section.

Also msdn contains some nice training video's developing Sharepoint 2013

This wil help you get started.

  • I have not installed sharepoint 2013 server/foundation 2013. Will I be able to develope apps for office 365?
