Join Teams work meetings from Microsoft Teams (free) and vice versa

Microsoft Teams (Free) users can currently join Teams for work (or school) meetings only as guests, which requires them to use a browser and results in a sub-optimal experience. The new feature rolling out will allow these users to join Teams for work (or school) meetings in one click, without being redirected to the browser or asked to fill in their name/surname. They will also be able to continue collaborating with the meeting organizer and other participants via meeting chat after the meeting.  The feature will work in the opposite way as well, so Teams for work (or school) will just as easily be able to join meetings hosted by a Teams Free user with one click.

Speaking at NICCONF

The fifth Nordic Infrastructure Conference (NIC) is just around the corner (February 3-5 in Oslo Spektrum), and I am proud to announce I am listed as one of the speakers this year.
The NIC is probably one of the largest and best Nordic IT events of the year, and it is a perfect place to be to meet up with peers and partners form all over.

I am holding a slightly different type of session on this event. Instead of doing a lvl400 technical session, I’m doing a low level session where I want to focus and highlight on the end-user experience of a unified communication deployment.

If you have deployed a unified communications platform, or are looking at a deployment in the future, this session is for you. I’ll talk about what your goal could be, how to successfully prepare the organization, and give away some few tricks on how to prepare yourself as a user. Read the full session description on the event site.

I might be speaking as Skype for business MVP, but the lessons lerned in this session can easily be applied to other technologies as well.

Session information: Unified Communications – Unplugged
Track: Server & Client Platform
Time: 04/02/2016, 14:40 - 15:40
Location: Room 3
