New article: A .Net application to extract appointments from Office 365 public calendars

Last week, we had an issue in the office. A big issue! One of the employee took one of the meeting rooms without booking it because he thought it was available. But a meeting was already scheduled for 15 minutes later. A big issue. A disaster.

Of course, I am joking about the amplitude of the issue but guess what, I was the one to whom they asked to solve the issue. Why not, I am the one who created the room resources in Office 365 after all!

People in that office are often too lazy to look at the various rooms in their Outlook calendar but they are good at reading emails. So, what I have done, I have created a .Net application that reads a specific public calendar (that the company use to collect various appointments important for the whole company) and also room resources appointments. The various are aggregated into a single email and sent around at 4PM for the events of the next 3 weekdays.
