Speaking at TechEd Europe 2014

Really proud to announce I am going to TechEd 2014 in Barcelona and speak at my first international event. I am really excited about it. The topic of my session is going to be how to manage your backup and restore for Lync 2013. It's going to be about what to have in mind when you plan your disaster recovery plan, and how.

Title: Managing Microsoft Lync Server 2013 Backup and Restore
Track: Office 365
Level: 300
Session: OFC-B331
Link: (login required at this point)
Time: Wednesday, October 29 10:15 AM - 11:30 AM

Abstract: As Lync becomes an important part of the infrastructure, it is equally important to be able to quickly restore its availability in the event of an outage. Even a well-designed High Availability solution may encounter loss of data or server failure. This session addresses which components the administrator will need to pay attention to when designing his disaster recovery plan. Not only do we discuss which components we need a backup of, but also which tools and commands are available to complete the task.

Room is still to be announced.

#NLD14 - Norwegian Lync Day announced

Lync Day 2014  has just been announced. It is going to be an international event, packed with sessions from Lync MVP's and other high level speakers. There's going to be at least two tracks this day, one for desicionmakers and one for more technical focused delegates. 

I was humbled by the request from the organizers to hold a session based on my backup and restore script and posts. And I am pleased to announce that I am going to hold a lvl 300 session on the subject. 

Most of the tracks will be held in English, and so will mine:

I really hope to see some of you at the Cube on the 14th of October.

Get-assignedlineuri v 3.4 released

I applied some of my lessons from the search-lineuri script, and applied it to the get-assignedlineuri script. It has probably reduced the code by 30% and is now much more efficient.
