Title Episode 64: And Now, The End Is Near
Published 2017-08-25
Topics In our final episode, we look back at 5 years of The UC Architects podcast episodes.

– What made it fun, the friendships, the guests, the topics, and how social media has changed how info gets disseminated about Skype for Business, Exchange, Office 365, Teams, and more.
– We talk about what the crew are up to these days, and their involvement/sessions at Ignite.
– Skype for Business v.next and Teams.
– Some of the issues that arise when deploying Skype for Business when there is no Exchange in the org.

We’d like to thank EVERYONE involved in this project. From those who were here at the beginning, to those who worked primarily behind the scenes. From the special guests and vendors to the sponsors. Everyone involved made it a lot of fun.
