Configuring a development environment, including a version control repository and build environment, can be complicated and time consuming. Using Visual Studio Online, you can go from zero to online in just 40 minutes! Developers will love just how quick and easy getting started really is. In this demo-heavy session, we start from scratch and quickly build up a solution using Microsoft Visual Studio, Team Foundation Server, and Microsoft Azure. We'll store our code in an enterprise-class repository, configure both automated build and automated release and have our new application running on Microsoft Azure all during this session. Some of the objectives I have for this session include; a) Showing the audience how you can go from zero to online business in 40 minutes or less b) Use Visual Studio Online to store our source code c) Configure an automated build and automated release to Microsoft Azure

With Skype used for more than 2 billion minutes a day (and counting), "Unified Communication" has now definitively changed communications, being available to your customers, at any time and any place.

It will demonstrate how the Skype-Lync Connectivity can improve the reachability of your enterprise, far beyond of what the ordinary telephone call approach can do. Illustrated by the native Lync contact center application LUCS, which already enables integration of Skype and Lync in the contact center, this session explains how to unleash the power of the various APIs available on Lync and Skype.
