TechEd 2005 was a great time, and I really enjoyed the extended look at BizTalk 2006
– lots of great presentations.  Much more has been done in this release than
I had anticipated, and I look forward to digging into the CTP build.

Thanks to those who attended my talk on automating BizTalk application deployments
– the questions asked during the session were great!  It was fun to talk to the
folks who are using the Deployment
Framework stuff…The deck I presented is here. 
BizTalk 2006 is doing a lot to make deployment easier – no comparison to
2004!  I expect a subset of the tools in the Deployment Framework to remain useful
– but that is another post for another day.

If you attended my DevCon 2005 talk on mobility (and even if you didn’t) you
can find the deck available here.  The
talk was specifically on the .NET Compact Framework 2.0 and Sql Server 2005 Mobile
