I just spent one of the longest three weeks of my life getting certified for Lync Masters. It was long by two fold: the day to day grind of 12+ hour days (this isn’t a 5 day work week…) focusing on nothing but Lync and then the three weeks away from my family. It was a great feeling that I came back on top!
I want to give a special shout out to my study group and fellow Masters (yes we were 100% in our group): Jeroen Reijling and Luke Kannel. These guys are at the top of their game. Also great on going conversations/contributions with the rest of Rotation 15. It was definitely a team effort.
If you are thinking about Lync Masters, I will give you one piece of advice: do not come to class without being at least familiar with all the features of Lync. This includes Enterprise Voice, Response Groups, CAC, Exchange UM, and even Group Chat. Do not expect to learn them on the spot. Also some bonus advice…do not come to Masters without first tying up loose ends with your company, projects, and family. Distractions will be your downfall.
