I’m speaking at NorDev in March
I’m pleased to be able to say that I’ll be speaking at the Norfolk Developers event on Wednesday, March 25, at The King’s Centre, Norwich.
Abstract: The PBX is an endangered species! Around the world companies are replacing old-style phone systems with VOIP solutions. Microsoft’s VOIP offering is called Microsoft Lync and is changing how people work. In 2015 Lync will be renamed Skype for Business and will offer integration to the rest of the Skype ecosystem. The great news for developers is that there are a collection of well-maintained APIs to help you integrate communication into your company in ways you’ve only dreamed of! After a lightning-fast roundup of Lync’s features and capabilities, I’ll dig into the different APIs available, what you can do with them and how they can change how your organisation thinks and works, including code samples so you can see how easy it is. Always wanted to create a custom IVR system for your company to look up order information? We’ll cover that…and lots more.
If you’re in the area, please do register and come along. This will be a technical (with code) talk, not a sales/marketing session.
I’m a big fan of NorDev (and the other community meetups such as SyncNorwich and SyncDevelopHER) and it’s one of my resolutions for 2015 to attend more events. If you’re Norfolk based (or visit/can drive here) then you should definately check out the events that are being run by NorDev, SyncNorwich and SyncDevelopHER. There is also a NorDevCon event happening on Friday 27th February, with speakers including, among others, the legendary Jon Skeet.
