What are people saying about this course?

The Microsoft Teams App Development OnRamp is an ideal way for professional developers who have been building Teams Apps for a while to check their knowledge and discover functionalities they weren’t aware of or need to brush up on.

The OnRamp series provides bite-sized daily emails, starting with the basics Teams App development and moving on through various Teams features and development concerns.

Andrew provides a wonderfully down-to-earth presentation of technical topics. His frank commentary about what works and what doesn’t cuts through the M365 marketing hype targeted at developers and helps us quickly hone in on development methods that deliver results.

Microsoft 365 development is an always evolving area. I recommend the Microsoft Teams App Development OnRamp and Andrew’s other works as a way of staying up-to-speed with what matters.
