About Author

Paul Robichaux got his first computer at age 8 and quickly developed the bad habit of spending time with it instead of playing outside. Over his career, he eventually learned the value of exercise and the great outdoors, but he still spends an inordinate amount of time tinkering with computers and networks for his customers. Along the way, he's worked as a software developer, instructor, and consultant, written several books, earned his pilot's license, and started running triathlons. Paul was awarded the Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) award for Exchange for 11 years running, and in 2014 he was inducted into the Exchange Hall of Fame. As a principal architect at Summit 7 Systems, Paul focuses on Office 365, Exchange Server, and Lync. A structural engineer by education, Bhargav Shukla discovered his attraction to computers during his computer technology education at college. The choice was clear when he had to choose between a Masters in Civil Engineering and a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification. The rest is a blur. Over the past 20 years, he has amassed experience with multiple products and platforms, but never letting his first love for Exchange fade. Ever since his Microsoft Mail days, he has been fascinated with the power of messaging and has kept up with the ever-changing world of the Exchange Server platform. He holds the prestigious Microsoft Certified Solutions Master (MCSM) certification in Exchange 2013 and is a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP). Bhargav currently works at KEMP Technologies as Director of Technology. He is also a founder of and active contributor to the Philadelphia UC User Group.
