Lync 2010 Resource Toolkit

There are several places on the web that consolidate lots of Lync 2010 resources, but I’m yet to find one that seems to have everything I need to lay my hands on when I build a new Lync 2010. Here’s mine. I hope it’s of use to you. If you find any tools that you think are missing from this list, please let me know. (I’ll be editing this post regularly as updates are released).

Here’s my Skype for Business 2015 Resource Toolkit.

Here’s my Lync 2013 Resource Toolkit.

I’m no longer regularly updating this page. Can we chat about a Skype for Business upgrade instead?
