Recently purchased your book - Hands-On Microsoft Teams. Found it very much useful to learn Microsoft Teams and also as a guide to prepare for the MS-700 certification exam.
Prabal Gope About Hands-on Microsoft Teams
A thorough enough look at MS Teams. The last few chapters are particular interesting, going over the basics of custom apps, power virtual agent, making bots, and using power shell to manage teams.
