Lync In-Person Events in 2014

January 9th, 2014 | Tags:

The new year brings a number of events I’d like to call out, firstly this month a number of great user groups.

For those in North America check out the Lync User Groups website (I’ll be hosting the Silicon Valley Lync User Group together with Alex Lewis on the 23rd of Jan).

If you’re based in the UK, the Microsoft UC User Group London has a meeting on the 30th Jan (I’ll be presenting with Tom Arbuthnot and Justin Morris – alas over video) – be aware registrations have been pretty strong so we’re currently on waiting list 🙁

I’d also like to mention Lync Conference, this is the go-to place for the Lync Community where you can explore the latest advancements in Unified Communications at the only comprehensive event in the world dedicated exclusively to Microsoft Lync and supporting solutions.

I’ll be speaking together with Dustin Hannifin about Video Conferencing Solutions Interoperable with Lync, this will be a 300 level session where Dustin and I give an update on changes to video in Lync 2013 (including Panoramic video changes), H.264 deep-dive, Office 365 integration, back-to-back user agents vs. native integration, alignment of solution to application and the low-down on LRS standards-based video co-existence. This is just some of the topics we’ll cover, long story short you won’t want to miss it! 🙂

Look forward to seeing you at some point in 2014!

    Great to see other user groups springing up around the world. Just thought I would stop buy and plug the Lync user group one of my helpful competitors setup on LinkedIn for the New Zealand market. A resource I hope more in NZ will find useful.
