Ppt and video is now available from my talk at Microsoft Ignite

May 2015 I had the honor to talk at Microsoft Ignite in Chicago. That was great fun and 300 showed up at my session about how to save time by automating phone number management in Skype for Business Server. Before this talk I released a new scritp called Get-SfBNumbers.ps1 which you can download and find more information about at http://SfBNumbers.net. Look for more Enterprise Voice tips and scripts at that site, and I will in time blog about examples for how to use the script.

I had a great time attending Microsoft Ignite, lots of networking and I got to attend some great sessions with interesting content. We also did a live recording of The UC Architects podcast with Jamie Stark joining us. Check out some images at the bottom of this blogpost
