March, the last month of Q1 in 2017, a month filled with exciting integration focussed events. After my trip down under I continued my talks at the Integration Monday, SDN Event, my colleagues at Macaw, and the long awaited Global Integration Bootcamp. The latter was a result of months of preparations, and work on labs, meetings and conversations on slack.
In this month, I wrote a few guest blogs for BizTalk360 blog, which will be published in the next months along with an eBook containing all the labs, we (Eldert, Rob, Tomasso and myself) have created for the Global Integration Bootcamp. The eBook contains the hands on labs for API Management, On premise data gateway, Service Bus, Logic Apps, IoT Hub, Stream Analytics and Event Hub. Basically with this labs, you will touch all the services and products that deal with integration.
Any reading this month, to be frank not so much. I read a lot of new papers, magazines and blogs. However, I do like to mention a new book that has been released on the market about integration that is worth to buy and read: Robust Cloud Integration with Azure.
My favorite albums that were released in March were:
- Obituary – Obituary
- Memoriam – For the Fallen
- Pallbearer – Heartless
- Junius – Eternal Rituals for The Accretion Of Light
- Sleepmakeswaves – Made of Breath Only
- Moonloop – Devocean
- Mastodon – Emperor of Sand
In March I did a couple of runs, including a few half marathons, one being the CPC in The Hague wearing a BizTalk360 running shirt.
There you have it Stef’s third Monthly Update and I can look back again with great satisfaction. The Global Integration Bootcamp was a success, which you can read in my previous blog post of this month. I’m looking forward to my trip to Sweden in April and running the full Marathon in Rotterdam on the 9th of April.
