Come and see an end-to-end 'real life' sample application showcasing the new platform features of the Microsoft Office Communications Server 2007 R2, Office Communicator 2007 R2, and Microsoft Exchange Server. Learn about the new APIs of the platform and about the key new scenarios that will be enabled so you as a developer can embed communications deeply in client as well as server applications. New APIs we showcase are the enhanced Unified Communications Managed API 2.0 which contains a complete SIP signaling stack, combined with a media stack, a managed speech API, UC Windows Workflow Activities, and tools integrated into Microsoft Visual Studio 2008.
