Welcome to our two days release party of BizTalk 2010

As you my already know, we are hosting a fantastic event in Stockholm, as we celebrate 10 year anniversary of BizTalk as a product along with the release of the new 2010 version.

At the same time, Richard Seroter, Stephen W. Thomas, Ewan Fairweather, Michael Sexton and Rama Ramani are releasing a book titled Applied Architecture Patterns on the Microsoft Platform. The book tackles 13 real-world scenarios and applies a decision framework for deciding the best Microsoft application platform technology for the problem at hand. In each chapter, a use case is outlined, a pattern is identified, multiple candidate architectures are evaluated, and a solution is built based on the best platform technology.

Even though this is not a BizTalk book, it addresses many patterns, techniques and products related to BizTalk. And we thought it’d be a great idea to invite the authors over to the The Swedish BizTalk User Group, and do a TWO day event with 10 sessions! Each session will relate to a chapter in the book, addressing a specific real-world scenario.

Needless to say, the scope for this event targets much brother audience then we normally do, covering the full suite of applicable Microsoft technologies, such as Windows Workflow, Windows Communication Foundation, Windows Server AppFabric, SQL Server Service Broker, SQL Server Integration Services, BizTalk Server, StreamInsight, Windows Azure and more. The goal is to sufficiently explain these applications and their optimal use cases in a way that helps you make better choices in your solution design.

If you have the opportunity to visit Sweden at the 8th and 9th of September, you are more than welcome to sign up for the event. The event is free and if you book your flight now, it's still pretty cheap (~€100).

Let us know you're coming.

Instrument your BizTalk Server

Optimizing and verifying your BizTalk Server installation is not an easy thing to do. The documentation is good but very extensive. This presentation aims to guide you through the most important operations you need to do in order to boost the performance of BizTalk.

Performance Optimization Patterns

This session will present architectural, design, and development patterns to improve BizTalk processing performance. "Performance" can be expressed by latency and/or throughput, and this session will cover aspects of both. This will include pipeline and orchestration patterns to increase throughput, reduce latency, and reduce memory usage during BizTalk processing. We will also cover the results from BizTalk CAT recent Perf engagements.
