Journey from Skype for Business to Microsoft Teams

As part of the Microsoft intelligent communications vision to deliver smarter calling and meeting experiences, we’re building Skype for Business capabilities into Teams. This will happen over time, and ultimately Teams will become the single client experience. As a valued Skype for Business customer, Microsoft is here to support you every step of the way on your journey to Teams. We understand that change takes time, so we invite you to begin exploring Teams today to understand the value it can offer to your organization, while you continue to run Skype for Business.

Visit the Teams product roadmap to stay on top of what’s coming next in Teams and decide the best time for your organization to move to Teams.

Another great way to stay on top of news about the journey from Skype for Business to Teams is the Skype for Busineses to Microsoft Teams Capabilities Roadmap – a downloadable PDF (in English only, at least for now) that gives Microsoft’s current expectations about Skype for Business capabilities coming to Teams.

For best results, we recommend that you follow this guidance in order:

1 – Optimize your current Skype for Business environment for Teams

2 – Pilot Teams alongside Skype for Business

3 – Enable Teams side-by-side with Skype for Business

4 – Drive value through user adoption


SharePoint ToolBox 118 Codeplex shutting down

Microsoft shutting down Codeplex 

from: Brian Harry’s blog

Almost 11 years after we created CodePlex, it’s time to say goodbye.  We launched CodePlex in 2006 because we, like others in the industry, saw a need for a great place to share software.  Over the years, we’ve seen a lot of amazing options come and go but at this point, GitHub is the de facto place for open source sharing and most open source projects have migrated there.

We migrated too.  As many of you know, Microsoft has invested in Visual Studio Team Services as our “One Engineering System” for proprietary projects, and we’ve exposed many of our key open source projects on GitHub (Visual Studio Code, TypeScript, .NET, the Cognitive Toolkit, and more).  In fact, our GitHub organization now has more than 16,000 open source contributors – more than any other organization – and we’re proud to partner closely with GitHub to promote open source.

So, it’s time to say goodbye to CodePlex.  As of this post, we’ve disabled the ability to create new CodePlex projects.  In October, we’ll set CodePlex to read-only, before shutting it down completely on December 15th, 2017.
