Show 53 - Part 2: The journey of Yo Teams

This week we are joined by the fascinating Wictor Wilen who talks about the journey that he has taken with the open source project Yo Teams. We talked about why he created the project, how it has grown, how the community has helped make it what it is and what's next for Yo Teams (plus Kevin asks the stupid question about how many Teams Apps he has created but just pretend that didn't happen). Whether you are a dev or not, it's a fascinating chat about the journey from something just for you him to a tool used by thousands of developers worldwide.

Show 48 - Part 1: The biggest Modern Workplace news of 2021

Ho ho ho, merry Christmas to all those who celebrate and apologies to the relentless bombardment of forced joviality to all those who don't. This week, Kevin, Al and Garry look back at the biggest topics of 2021 to see how big those new stories now feel. Strange to think that this time last year, none of us knew about Viva. Amazing to see the growth of Cyber Security and the sad fact of virtual conference fatigue. Could we really have hoped that our dream of the death of IE11 would finally come true. Join us to find out.

Mark talked about all the different things that will be at the event itself (that you can join in person or virtually) and Randy shared loads of info on how Teams Devices can help, from better headsets all the way through to a full meeting room with sound bars, ceiling microphones and even a mahogany table.
