30 blogs in 30 days is tough. When I bet Yannick Reekmans on Twitter back on the 17th of March it's fair to say I had no idea what I was letting myself in for even though I write a blog pretty much every single week. I have a full time job, and through MVP Summit, running TeamsFest, family commitments and the surge in Tech Community it's been a hell of a ride. Good thing I love Teams and keeping promises then isn't it! So coming to the end of this series I thought I would cap it all with a few helpful things I can think of and which can set you on your way. I haven't covered everything in this series - far from it. Yet I had to make a choice, since I am not blessed with infinite time, the ability to warp space time, or defer my responsibilities as a husband and father, to focus on core workloads and the fundamentals. When I think of Teams as a user I think of chat, and files, and meetings, and calling and apps. I chose Deskop and Web on Windows purely because in the current situation I haven't got access to a Mac and mobile takes ages to take pictures and get them onto a site. Maybe one day I'll do a series on that. In the meantime I wish you the very best in your experience with Teams. Since Teams is rapidly evolving the content in this series will no doubt age. I'll review and amend for a while, but one of the key things about Teams is that change is constant. The cadence of new functionality is unbelievable - and I already know that within the past 30 days I'll have to go back and amend the article on background blur as today they released background effects to general availability. Blink, and you may miss a serious good add.
In my personal experience, it is not just IT Pro's who want to keep up to date with roadmaps and have an understanding of whats coming to the platforms they manage. Enthusiasts and evangelists are often eager to see new features that they may be able to leverage or rave about to their partners and customers. Support always wants to know what's coming down the pipe in order to prepare for what they see are inevitable issues. Finance loves anything which can lead to greater ROI and save money - and CEO's often like to know they got it right.
