MSDN Webcast: Unified Communications for Developers: Building Communications Into Your Applications (Level 200)
Microsoft Unified Communications (UC) is turning the traditionally hardware-oriented communications world into software. Building the Unified Communications platform, with rich APIs and solid tool support, is a cornerstone of that strategy. This webcast gives an overview of what scenarios the UC platform enables and the APIs and software development kits (SDKs) that Microsoft Unified Communications offers. It demonstrates how to integrate presence, voice over IP (VoIP), video, and messaging into applications, and also how to build powerful communications applications like IM-based query/response bots, outbound notifications, and speech technology-enabled telephony applications.
