TechDays 2011 in Toronto featured a myriad of sessions on Communications and Collaboration technologies featuring Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint Server, Microsoft Lync, and  Office 365.  You learned about howsharepointLogo_web to extend your Exchange infrastructure into the Cloud, the important role SharePoint plays in a the Microsoft business intelligence platform, how to effectively do web conferencing using Lync, as well as how to extend your SharePoint infrastructure beyond your four walls to your business partners or integrate Office 365 with it.  Hopefully you left each session understanding all the concepts and knowing exactly what you needed to do in order to implement the technologies in your organization.
