There are already several sessions submitted to the event but I encourage everyone, whether they are MVPs, Microsoft product group or community member enthusiasts, who want to talk about the following topics:

  • BizTalk Server 2016: new capabilities, open source tools or frameworks, …
  • Logic Apps and Enterprise Integration Pack
  • Building reliable and scalable cloud messaging and hybrid integration solutions with Service Bus
  • Event Hubs
  • IoT
  • API Management
  • Hybrid Integration using BizTalk Server and Logic Apps, or connecting to on-prem resources using the On-Premise Gateway
  • Microsoft Flow

Or other related Integrate topic, to submit a session on the Integration track, everyone can have a shot to speak in one of the best IT conferences in Portugal.

The organization is preparing a lot of new stuff for this second edition, but it is still too early for announcements. Stay tuned!
