Leading up to the Microsoft Lync virtual launch event

Momentum continues to build around Microsoft's upcoming launch of Lync 2010, its next release of Office Communications Server and Communicator. Last week, Microsoft released Lync 2010 to manufacturing. And on Nov. 17, Microsoft will celebrate the release during its virtual launch event in New York City.

As a Microsoft partner, I've been invited to join the launch event. I'll be there tuning in to the keynote from Chris Capossela, Senior Vice President of the Information Worker Product Management Group at Microsoft, and Gurdeep Singh Pall, Corporate Vice President of the Office Communications Group at Microsoft. They're slated to discuss how Lync fits into Microsoft's broader productivity platform, including SharePoint, Exchange, and Office.

I'll also have my camera with me as usual to capture the happenings on film, and snag any interviews I can with Microsoft executives and customers. We'll be bringing our coverage back to you here on our blog.

We also have some exciting things related to Lync and ProtoSphere that we plan to share with you on our blog leading up to the event. Back in September we told you we will be introducing Microsoft Lync Server 2010 support in a future ProtoSphere release. You can expect the next chapters of that story to unfold soon. Til then!
