Demos delivered in this session

Getting started on building a Microsoft Teams bot with yo teams – what is yo teams (a Microsoft Teams app generator) and how to use it to build a bot.  After installing Yeoman generator and Gulp CLI task manager, install npm i -g generator-teams.  Create a project.  In VS Code step through files generated by yo teams.  Use gulp build, gulp manifest and gulp serve.  Upload created bot to Teams site and appreciate its out-of-box capabilities.    

Microsoft List Formatting - Challenges and Solutions appreciate results of one person’s winter lock down – List Formatting samples categorized by emotions, multiple person, color picker, bar option, slider, and Teams Group.  Solutions include discussion board, events mobile and payment.  Graphical tree along with LABs (show how handle manual actions from users) for Tic Tac Toe and roll dice.  UI/script shown on slides, live in demo.   Samples available in List Formatting Repo soon. 

Updates on Independent Publisher Connectors & GoQR Connector Demo – 49 connectors in production, 40 in pipeline today!  The GoQR connector generates QR codes.  In Power Apps, render the QR Code image alone or embed the QR code image in a document or pdf, i.e., an invoice.  Simple build - a text field, a button (calls connector with action create) and a flow.   This connector is now available to anyone in the world.
