Updates on Independent Publisher Connectors & Infura Ethereum Connector Demo – 76 certified Independent Publisher Connectors in production, 42 in pipeline today!  Infura provides services to access the Ethereum Blockchain without your own Ethereum Node.  This connector (one of the first with custom code) allows you to interact with Ethereum Blockchain JSON-RPC API through Infura.  What is the Ethereum Blockchain, how communicate with it, 3 challenges identified and subsequently addressed inside connector and learnings summarized.

Gmail migration app in Teams from the Microsoft Hackathon – a Microsoft Teams app sample that allows users to migrate Gmail inbound email filters as Outlook new message rules.  Two migration options – fetch filters directly from Gmail or Upload a Gmail filter export (XML).  Uses Fluent UI controls, Teams Toolkit, Graph authentication and client side React scripting.  When migration complete, verify configuration in Outlook Rules.  Presenter steps through code for both migration options. 

Broadcast information to Microsoft Teams with Power Apps – a solution for posting a message - an Adaptive Card with deep link or text message, to any Teams channel (except private channel) or Teams activity feed (priority message), regardless of if you are a member of the targeted channel.  Uses Bot Framework REST API from a Power Automate Cloud Flow.  The Power App is connected to 2 SharePoint lists – Teams details and sent messages.
