  • Teams Meeting App – Record and playback attendee names – for pronunciation purposes, capture and subsequently hear upon demand, a meeting participant’s name.  Start by creating a meeting and install Teams app into the meeting.  See experience in UI from scheduler and participant perspectives.  Understand usage prerequisites, pre-meeting and in-meeting experiences, and step through core code - Teams manifest, handling device types, meeting status, custom audio control.

  • Feedback bot using the new Adaptive Card capabilities – this bot functional in Microsoft Teams and Outlook (Universal actions), showcases 3 Adaptive Card features - Sequential workflow (concurrently awaits/tracks action from initiator and each participant), Up-to-date cards (real-time refresh across all users’ cards) and Contextual views (Reader’s view changes based on role).  Sample created with node JS/Type script and Yeoman Generator for Bot v4.  Step through well commented code.
