This year I decided I’m either going to get back to writing or shut down my blog hosting account. To that end, I’m going to try and commit to more blogging. I don’t want to repeat what everyone else out there is doing so hopefully I can come up with some unique...

Lync Conference 2014 Wrap Up

I have to say this year’s Lync Conference seems to have been a huge success! Lots of sessions, lots of networking, and lots of education on the present and future of Lync. I personally wasn’t able to attend a lot of sessions due to customer meetings, booth duty, and my own presentation, but I did hear great things about several of them. Like many of you, I will be downloading the recordings from MyLync to watch later. Below are a few...
