Recently I was asked to present at the BizTalk Users Group in Sweden. I had a great time and was welcomed nicely by my Swedish friends.
I presented on the new enhancements to the Windows Application Server role code named Dublin.
I presented two 35 minutes sessions covering a lot of the same material talked about at the recent TechEd in Los Angeles, CA.
The two sessions are now online and available for everyone to watch. The first session is essentially the value proposition of using Dublin and Workflow Services and the second session is a deeper dive into custom tracking and monitoring.
The top question I get is when can I get the code for Dublin? Microsoft stated at TechEd they planned for a public beta of Dublin around the PDC 09 timeframe.
Enjoy and please post any comments or questions.

Abstract: This session takes a deeper dive into Windows Application Server Enhancements by looking in detail at the hosting of a Workflow Service.
