If you are looking for adding cool instant messaging and presence functionality to your web applications or simple C# applications, try out Communicator Web Access AJAX Service SDK, it already includes the sample code to get started. I will also keep posting quick code snippets here.

 

Quick Info from the SDK:

Communicator Web Access AJAX Service is the application programming interface for Microsoft Office Communicator Web Access. Application developers can use it to create Communicator-compatible clients that allow users to manage and share presence information, to manage contacts and groups, to send and receive instant messages, and to search for users within an enterprise. Such clients can be a browser-based Web application (e.g., an ASP or ASP.NET application) or a standalone network application (e.g., a .NET executable). The client applications can be written in a wide range of programming languages including JavaScript, C#, Perl, C/C++, and the Visual Basic development system. Because the Communicator Web Access AJAX Service is based on the flexible AJAX programming model, the client applications are not limited to running on Microsoft Windows operating systems and can readily be deployed to desktop, laptop, or other devices.
