The turnout for our special birthday event at Microsoft’s London office was excellent (with hot London weather, summer holidays and Olympic-sized travel chaos we weren’t sure we’d get great attendance at first) , we attracted lots of new attendees and received a load of great questions and some great interaction (event more post-event at the bar 🙂 )
We were fortunate enough to have Steve Tassell from Microsoft deliver a great strategic overview for Lync 2013, the goals and functionality begin targeted by Microsoft. Tom went into more detail on Top 10 features. I did video conferencing (some major changes/improvements here) and then Justin did a more detailed look into architectural changes, specifically within high availability – there was some very positive feedback on this, although some were disappointed to learn that some of the existing models are now unsupported.
Thanks to all those that joined us and we hope to see you all at our next event on October 25th, venue and topics to be announced – stay tuned. Presentations from Justin, Tom, Geraint and I are now available via the MUCUGL SlideShare account (also embedded below)
