Develop Soical Integrations with Yammer

Recently Published my first book on "Develop on Yammer- Social Integrations for Modern Applications".

 Develop on Yammer

This book is for Developers and  Solution Architects who want to bring Yammer integrations into mainstream business applications and portal. It gives complete guidance to start with lightweight integrations with Yammer to Develop Mobile Apps for Yammer integration. You can refer this book with confidence to make best use of Yammer in your organisation.

The book begins with an introduction to the development options available along with guidance on how to set up a Yammer developer account. You’ll then take your first step in Yammer integration by building a Yammer feed into a web page or other JavaScript-based client application, before diving into app creation and management on the Yammer platform.

We have provided a deep dive into the Yammer authorization process from client-side and server-side perspectives, and you’ll find out how to work closely with Yammer’s data streams and its full range of development possibilities using Open Graph and Yammer’s REST API. The final chapters cover how to build Yammer integration into standalone applications for SharePoint and Windows Phone 8 with Yammer SDKs.

All chapters are illustrated with examples and sample code, and a case study follows the development of a workplace training application as the authors apply each technique, so you can see how to make the most of what Yammer has to offer.

Error: Resolved : Connect-SPOService : For security reasons DTD is prohibited in this XML document.

Today, I could not connect to my tenant admin with PowerShell. When I execute PS command:
Connect-SPOService -Url

 I was getting the following error:
Connect-SPOService : For security reasons DTD is prohibited in this XML document. To enable DTD processing set the DtdProcessing property on XmlReaderSettings to Parse and pass the settings into XmlReader.Create method.
At line:1 char:1
+ Connect-SPOService -Url

I checked that a latest version of the "SharePoint Online Management Shell" was installed on my local machine. But error was still occurring.

Later, I noticed problem reoccurs only from my home(Virgin Media) network and not when I connect through Azure Virtual machine. 
I also found connection to SharePoint online uses  Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.SharePointOnlineCredentials class. Checking this API I noticed culprit is my local Broadband provider "Advanced Search Service". which was intercepting my request. 
I have to google to stop my ISP to intercept this:: 

Opting out from this ISP Search service sorted the problem and finally managed to connect to SP Online service using Global Admin account.
