Some quick notes:

  • Tomorrow (Mar 11 2008) my friend and all-round rock star Michele Leroux-Bustamante will be speaking at the Connected Systems SIG of the San Diego .NET User Group. We will meet at the Microsoft La Jolla office, 6:00 for pizza and networking, 6:30 for the meeting.
  • Wednesday Chris Romp and I take our critically-acclaimed (we’re critical, and we acclaim it :)) BizTalk Development Best Practices show to the Orange County Connected Systems User Group meeting (Microsoft Technology Center, 3 Park Plaza, Suite 1600, Irvine). I’ve done a bazillion presentations (and perhaps even more!) during the course of my career, and this is perhaps one of the most fun to deliver. It always turns into a highly-interactive event, and everyone, including us, learns something. RSVP to mikev@mvasoftware.com. Pizza and networking at 6:30, meeting starts at 7:00.
  • I will be presenting at TechEd again this year, this time a Technical Drilldown into Microsoft’s ESB Guidance, in the SOA and Business Process track. I’m really looking forward to it, TechEd is always such a great event.
  • Lastly, I am honored to be participating on a curriculum advisory board for California State University, for a new SOA program they are developing. This is going to be fun I think, and it’s great to be able to help shape a far-reaching course like this. I did a similar thing for University of California San Diego a couple of years ago. If anyone has any thoughts on this, please drop me a note.
