Microsoft Teams & Bot Framework - a developer's perspective

In the official blog post announcing Teams Microsoft choose the wording of "… an entirely new experience that
brings together people, conversations and content …" For many reasons Teams is seen as the successor to Skype for Business and a sort of hero client for Office365. With all these big words it's time to have a close look at the developer story for Teams. How can it be extended to enterprise needs in terms of Tabs that can be based on SharePoint framewok webparts, Apps or Connectors. As Teams heavily fosters a chat based working style the option of deploying Bots also plays an important role in the developer perspective of Microsoft Teams.
