I am super proud to announce that the new book I Co-Authored, Lync Server 2013 Unleashed is now available! This book is available on Amazon in ebook and good ol paperback! http://amzn.com/0672336154
The Microsoft NextHop blog provided an incredibly generous review of the book, which is available here: http://blogs.technet.com/b/nexthop/archive/2013/04/17/hot-off-the-presses-microsoft-lync-server-2013-unleashed.aspx
What I want to do in this post is provide an overview of the sections in the book, and how they will apply to readers of all types. When we started writing this book we wanted it to be the number one resource for Lync. This includes covering all aspects of a Lync journey, from early conception to detailed troubleshooting and advanced technical scenarios. I have broken the readers down into two broad categories, although I am sure there are many other scenarios out there.

August 16th 2012 2PM-5PM, an Afternoon in NYC with Lync 2013
The NYC Lync User Group will be conducting its next meeting on August 16th, 2012 at the Microsoft Manhattan Office! This meeting will introduce everyone to Lync Server 2013. With all of the new features coming in Lync 2013, we will have plenty to talk about at this meeting. Food and Drink will be provided as well!
In addition to discussing Lync 2013, we will also have a special presentation from the Unify2 UC Adoption Team. “The switch from legacy telephony to unified communications is a high hurdle for many enterprises, and changing the way workers conduct meetings from in physical locations to online is an even steeper learning curve. Unify2 Adoption Services are designed to lay groundwork for increased user satisfaction and improved productivity, and to help our customers realize their ROI in a shorter timeframe.”
