    Business Process Automation with Chris O’Connor

    Chris O’Connor joins us to discuss the world of business process automation.


    While Chris is a developer at heart, he’s always looking to provide direct business value. His experience extends back to the early days, and we spoke about his life developing VB, distributed COM, 3-tiered architectures, and the early days of business process automation and management. Fast-forward to today, the same concepts apply, but the tools are vastly different.

    With this, our last episode of 2020, we wish all of our listeners, and contributors, the best of seasons greetings. Catch you in the new year!

    Quick tips

    Speaking of Teams, we discussed the options available to debug network activity in Teams. Below are the three ways you can analyse Teams network and debug logs:


    Check the local log file locations


    macOS: /Users/username/Library/Application Support/Microsoft/Teams
    Windows: C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Teams


    Install Fiddler Everywhere

    Available for macOS, Windows, and Linux, Telerik’s Fiddler Everywhere can intercept your machine’s network traffic, to analyse each individual request.


    Use the Ctrl-Shift-Alt-1 keystroke

    On Windows, pressing Ctrl-Shift-Alt-1 will produce a series of log files in your Teams Downloads folder. The equivalent keystroke on macOS is Ctrl-Shift-Option 1. Note that this only works in some parts of the Teams UI.
