About the author

João Carlos Oliveira Ferreira is an acclaimed Microsoft MVP, MCP, and MCSA. João has been working with SharePoint for the last 8 years and embraced Microsoft Teams right from day one. João is responsible for the development of several products and is also the manager of several development teams.

When I was a child, I always dreamed of writing a book. Years passed by and this idea was forgotten, until the day Packt reached out to me to write this book.

None of this would have been possible without the support of my family, my girlfriend, and my friends, who gave me confidence and helped me to keep up the writing pace.

Thanks to everyone at Packt who taught me so much about the book-writing process and offered valuable suggestions that ultimately will make you a Microsoft Teams hero.

Lastly, I want to thank the Microsoft community for always being willing to help others.
