Buy Once, Update Often
The Microsoft Teams Development landscape is evolving at pace and over time restrictions are lifted and new ways of extending Teams open up. The only way to make a book about Teams Development relevant is to use a platform that supports regular updating. This book is written and updated regularly over time, in an open way based on new announcements and your feedback. Buying the book means you will get every single update for free meaning you will always be up to date

For Developers, AND Normal People
This book is divided into different sections. The author is an experienced Teams developer and architect. If you or your team are looking to get started building a Teams application from scratch then this book shows you how with the detail you need and the background information to help you understand how the development platform is organised.
If you're not a developer, this book is also for you. There are dedicated sections for low-code and no-code solutions that don't assume any prior knowledge or coding experience. Citizen developers (aka normal people who know how the business works and just want to solve a problem) will find solutions they use implement themselves today, as well as understand what's possible and when to call in the development professionals.
There isn't a book like this for Microsoft Teams developers today, and in writing it I've tried to produce the book I would want to read if I was starting out on this journey for the first time. The Teams Development Platform is a really exciting place to be and I hope you'll join me. Best of luck with your first Teams application!
