UCMA 2.0 at Metro

Tomorrow, I’m headed to Chicago with my coworker Mark Stafford to attend the Metro program to get down and dirty with the new UCMA 2.0 beta bits. Having at least played with the majority of the UC APIs this year throughout my company’s OCS deployment, I have seen my fair share of hacks to implement the scenarios that we needed to get working, the most notable of which is our current recording solution. It’s based on the Speech Server APIs, and without going too much into it, it’s safe for me to say that it’s not pretty. So you can only imagine how excited I am to hear that this scenario is one that UCMA 2.0 will support.

In the meantime, I’ve been reviewing the pieces of UCMA by reading Joe Calev’s blog. If you are new to UCMA I would recommend checking it out; Joe has a lot of detailed posts on UCMA 1.0 and a new series on UCMA 2.0 that is underway.

I hope to post updates with the material I learn over the next two days as quickly as I can, so stay tuned!
