Microsoft Graph Security Hackathon

Microsoft has been building out its ‘cloud first’ strategy for many years now. As once separate on-premises server products have morphed into online services, we have been reaping the benefit of tighter integration between these services products. We’ve seen this most strongly with the Office 365 services where SharePoint, Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, OneNote), OneDrive, and Teams have really become tightly integrated. From a development point of view this cloud strategy has provided Microsoft with a way of delivering a single unified API across the entire surface area of Office 365 covering all these product services. This API is called the Microsoft Graph API. Recently Microsoft added a bunch of it’s security services into the Graph API providing a standard interface and uniform schema to integrate security alerts, unlock contextual information, and simplify security automation.

Microsoft is running a developer hackathon (the Microsoft Graph Security Hackathon) which simply involves using the new security APIs to see what good use you can put it too. There’s some awesome prizes on offer
($15,000 worth!). There’s also some great judges that will be looking at the entries which will give your submissions and ideas some great exposure.

Get coding and submit your entry before March 1, 2019.
