The year 2013 is almost finished, and has been a great year, and a very busy year for me.
I have been working almost full time with Lync this year, which was one of my goals back in 2012. I have been on both small Lync projects, larger projects but also maintaining my current Lync installations.
This year was also the year where I decide to do a lot more blogging, which I been doing for almost 5 years now, because I see that there is a need for IT Pro’s like myself, to find relevant blogs about Unified Communications, and because I love to share what I know with my fellow colleagues.
On an average day, my blog has 350 visitors and 30+ email followers, which I am extremely proud of, and I hope that my guides will help others in their jobs, and it will contribute in a lot more UC solutions.
In the last few months if have made my first big series, which was a how to guide on deploying Lync Server 2013 High Availability solution which until now has had over 10.000 page views.
So what will happen in 2014 – First of all I’m going to the Lync Conference in February which I’m really looking forward to – it’s so cool to be on a conference where it’s only one product and level in the sessions is very high.
I also have a lot of plans for future blog posts which of course will be on Lync, but I also have a couple on Exchange, that are going to be very cool.
2014 is also the year where we will get Service Pack 1 for all the major products from the Office division, where both Lync and Exchange resides, and it’s going to be exciting what new feature we will see – I really like updates, and especially the new ones, because they not only contains fixes, but also new features.
2014 will hopefully also end with release of next Lync and Exchange version – if we should believe that Microsoft will release new major products every 2 years.
One of my more personal goals is that I would really like to be an MVP, and be able to spread the UC message even more – but let’s see how that goes – but I will need your help for so keep coming back, and comment on my posts or suggest new ones so I can make even more relevant posts.
The last thing I have to say:
Happy New Year to you and your love ones, and thank you very much for visiting my blog.
