My contribution is around the Skype for Business chapter and I explain the service from the basics, how to succeed with adoption and usage and dive in to understanding the core technology and optimizing for media quality. This is an evolving book and I will add content to the chapter as new features gets released and as more E5 features becomes mainstream.

Personally I like the format of the book because it is written by MVP’s that works with the technology every day and have a deep understanding of the underlying technology. I was first introduced to the book when trying to understand how Office 365 Groups works and had difficulty finding relevant and updated documentation on the internet. Reading the chapter on Office 365 Groups in the book helped me get an updated and correct understanding of the service and put it in context of other services in Office 365. This is why I recommend this book to all IT Pros working with Office 365 and needs a general understanding of the entire service.

I think that search engines are loosing their powers in an evergreen and ever changing Cloud World. When searching failed me for learning what I needed about Office 365 Groups I found that the Office 365 for IT Pros book had the angle and up to date answers I needed. It is kept up to date by MVPs who work with and understand the technology for what it is and what it’s not, so you know you get an up to date and thoughtful answer. It covers all of Office 365 with practical examples to get you started. I strongly believe in this format moving forward since it is difficult to search for Groups or Teams online, and when you find articles they are half a year old and may or may not be outdated. To make sure I stay up to date on my core knowledge, I offered my services to write about Skype for Business Online and hybrid. I am happy to be accepted in to the team with Tony Redmond, Michael Van Horenbeeck and Paul Cunningham. I look forward to contribute to a great collection of knowledge. The fourth edition is planned for a June 1st release, read more about it here
