Microsoft Teams is part of the Office 365 collaboration portfolio and combines many of the Office 365 services in a chat based workspace. Microsoft Teams also has many extensibility points and this series will explore them. We’ll use a fictional example and build it up in stages throughout the articles. At the end of the series you’ll be left with a prototype you can explore and build upon.

So what did we build?

Our Microsoft Teams app (aka Silverstone Bot)  provides the following:

  • Provide access to the Silverstone knowledge base
  • Allow team members to ‘free chat’ about drivers
  • Help the team record all of the race incidents, who was involved and where around the circuit
  • Help the team record all of the overtaking, who passed who and more details about the move like where around the circuit



The following are useful resources:
