Can it be true you ask? Yes, it is true. I’m really happy to announce the Applied Architecture Patterns on the Microsoft Platform Tour of New Zealand, with accomplished author and fellow BizTalk MVP Richard Seroter presenting. These will be great sessions for any .NET developer, architect or IT manager trying to make sense of the plethora of new technologies recently released by Microsoft in the application platform space. So mark your calendar and register if you are around! Feel free to forward the invite to anyone you think might be interested. These are user group meetings – free, with drinks and pizza, plus there’s giveaways at the end.
When to Use What: Navigating the Microsoft Application Platform to Choose the Right Solution
Microsoft has recently released a host of new and updated application platform technologies. It is a challenge to keep up with this onslaught of releases and still maintain an understanding of which technology is the best fit for a given solution. In this session, we will do a tour through the Microsoft application platform and apply strategies outlined in the new book, Applied Architecture on the Microsoft Platform (Packt Publishing, 2010).Through a mix of discussion and demonstration we’ll highlight the patterns where Windows Azure, BizTalk Server, SQL Server, StreamInsight and Windows Server AppFabric are the right solution.
Presenter: Richard Seroter
Richard Seroter is a senior solutions architect for an industry-leading biotechnology company, a Microsoft MVP for BizTalk Server, and a Microsoft Connected Technology Advisor. He has spent the majority of his career consulting with customers as they planned and implemented their enterprise software solutions. Richard worked first for two global IT consulting firms, which gave him exposure to a diverse range of industries, technologies, and business challenges. Richard then joined Microsoft as a SOA/BPM technology specialist where his sole objective was to educate and collaborate with customers as they considered, designed, and architected BizTalk solutions. One of those customers liked him enough to bring him onboard full time as an architect after they committed to using BizTalk Server as their enterprise service bus. Once the BizTalk environment was successfully established, Richard transitioned into a solutions architect role where he now helps identify enterprise best practices and applies good architectural principles to a wide set of IT initiatives.
Richard is the author of two books: "Applied Architecture Patterns on the Microsoft Platform" (Packt Publishing, 2010), and "SOA Patterns with BizTalk Server 2009" (Packt Publishing, 2009). He is also the technical reviewer of the book "Pro BizTalk 2009" (APress, 2009).
Richard maintains a semi-popular blog of his exploits, pitfalls, and musings with BizTalk Server and enterprise architecture at http://seroter.wordpress.com
