Speaking at VBUG (Bracknell)
I will be presenting an introductory session to Biztalk 2006 R2 (and spending some time on the WCF adapters) at the local chapter of VBUG in Bracknell. Of course, we will also spend a little while discussing the impact of Oslo and Dublin and the factors to keep in mind when choosing your integration technologies.
Despite the fact that it has been around for ages and has IMO a lot of visibility, it seems that BizTalk Server still remains a sort of niche product with a lot of developers totally unfamiliar with it and what it could give them. The last time I presented on Biztalk,WCF and WF at the VBUG conference in 2008, we found that a significant number of the audience didn’t know anything at all about BizTalk and from discussing with contacts in other countries as well, it seems that its a familar situation 😦 . Well, anyway, I hope I can do something in my own small way towards rectifying that.
So if you’re in the area and Biztalk is unfamiliar territory why not check it out?
