Today I found out that the latest book that I have been contributing to is now available for pre-order.  I got involved with this project right around the time that my  last book was published.  Our editor on that book offered us the opportunity to work on this book.  Johan Hedberg, the lead author, was also extended this opportunity.  So after a moment of weakness, and perhaps a few beers on a boat ride in Stockholm, I agreed to get involved in this book as well.  Joining us on this adventure is Morten la Cour who lives in Denmark and also has a vast amount of BizTalk experience.

The book is a preparation guide for the latest BizTalk Server 2010 Certification.  In this book you will be provided with practical examples of the skills that will be measured on this exam.  In our book we do cover each of the areas that will be tested including:

  • Configuring a Messaging Architecture
  • Developing BizTalk Artifacts
  • Debugging and Exception Handling
  • Integrating Web Services and Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) Services
  • Implementing Extended Capabilities
  • Deploying, Tracking, and Supporting a BizTalk Solution

We also include valuable sample questions at the end of each chapter and also include an entire chapter at the end of the book that should provide you with a good gauge as to whether or not you are ready to write the test.  This book is not a brain dump.  If you are looking for any easy way out you won’t find it here.  But if you already have a good base of BizTalk knowledge and are willing to put in the effort to really understand the content in this book, I am confident that you will do well on the exam.

I would also like to extend thanks to the technical reviewers that have spent hours reviewing our content which without a doubt has increased the quality of the book.  Our reviewers include:

  • Steef-Jan Wiggers
  • Mikael Hakansson
  • Jan Eliasen
  • Genuine Basil

The anticipated publish date is in May, 2012.  In the mean time, you can read more about our book on the Packt website :
