Microsoft Lync and Skype for Business have a rich set of .NET APIs which make it easy to extend the platform and integrate it with other applications. This blog helps explain how to use those APIs.

New Lync 2013 development book?

Posted: December 10th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Lync Development | Tags: , , | 5 Comments »

Suppose we were to do a new book on Lync development, covering the API platform for Lync Server 2013. Regardless of whether you’ve read my previous book, is this something you would be interested in? Would you buy a book on Lync Server 2013 development? What topics would you want to see covered in the book?

Please leave a comment and let me know.

    Hello Michael

    I’ve read your previous book (well done btw :-)) and I’m very interested in a Lync 2013 development book. It would be nice to cover some topics about the Lync Server API (MSPL, Managed Code) and of course everything about the new Lync 2013 API (Client, UCMA).

    I’d definitely buy a new book, but I don’t know if the time is right yet for a book on 2013 development?

    We (mostly) know the shape of what’s going to be coming in terms of UCWA and the other improvements to the SDK, but they aren’t released yet and I imagine the feature list is going to change. For instance, it could be that Skype integration SDK functionality is highly prioritized over other planned features, for marketing reasons.

    To leave these new things out because they aren’t settled yet would be a real shame, as UCMA hasn’t really changed much since 2010.

    Most definitely mate! Would probably like to see more on MSPL as that was only touched on lightly.

    And most defintely a deep dive into UCWA and updates to Persistent Chat since the other APIs have not changed that much from a functionality point of view.

    Some info into Skype & PIC users would be great and maybe some stuff on replacing the Workflow SDK solutions with UCMA Core.

    Short answer: Yes.. I keep searching and hoping for an updated Lync Server 2013 book. (I bought myself your previous book as a Christmas present, good read, and still relevant).

    I agree with the other commenters above, and would like to see more on MSPL + Managed Code (just because that’s what I’ve been working with recently – although your blog has helped fill some gaps).
