Russ Kirk and Adam Gent from the Unified Communications User Group have a Live Meeting coming up soon entitled UC User Group: Enabling REST clients for Lync, including Windows Phone 7.

What’s it all about?

Join the gang for an hour-long session exploring the unofficial work done by some Microsoft developers in Denmark who have created a Windows Phone 7 Lync client together with a REST server. You’ll get an overview of how the architecture works, the role and uses of the REST server and a demonstration of the Lync Windows Phone 7 client features, including Call from Work.

Who should attend?

This Live Meeting is recommended for infrastructure specialists who want to see the capabilities of the  client and developers who wish to extend unified communications features into their applications using the REST server.

Some initial information about the client is available here.

If you are new to REST servers and their role with mobile applications, the Wikipedia article is at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/REST

The event is scheduled for 14 April 2011 at 3-30pm.
