Demos delivered in this session

Make a simple bot using Webhooks in Microsoft Teams – this simple (request/response capability) Teams bot gets weather using an outgoing webhook.  A user @ mentions the webhook (@weather) and a location (London) triggering an Azure function, that calls the OpenWeatherMap API for local weather information.  An Adaptive Card is returned to user with weather conditions.   Technically, any member of a Team can create this simple webhook, not creating and registering a full-fledged bot.

Use the Power Platform and Microsoft Teams to quiz yourself – on details of what you read 3 months ago?  Happen to keep a list of what you read in SharePoint?  Want to create a no code solution to quiz yourself on past reads using Power Automate that pulls details transformed into questions from your list, shuffles the array of questions (for quiz experience), and renders them on an Adaptive Card that also evaluates your response?   

Updates on Independent Publisher Connectors & Cloverly / Ecologi Connector Demo – 72 connectors now in production more than half created by presenter – Troy.  29 connectors in the pipeline!  Shown are 2 connectors for accessing environmental sustainability data.  Access Cloverely’s API to calculate cost of carbon emitting activities and Ecologi for reports.  From both, users may purchase trees and carbon offsets.  Presenter’s Power App has buttons for purchasing trees, offsets, reports.  Connectors to be available soon.    


Thank you for your work. Samples are often showcased in Demos.    Request a Demo spot on the call
