It’s been a while since I’ve said anything here about Windows Server AppFabric, so I thought I’d do a quick post about some great resources about the technology. I highly recommend both of these.

White paper: If you’re new to AppFabric, or want a better understanding of how the whole thing works at an architectural level, there’s a great new Architecture Guide that just became available at the Windows Server AppFabric site. You can get it here. Great job by my colleagues Emil Velinov of the Windows Server AppFabric Customer Advisory Team (CAT) and Michael McKeown.

Book: Then, if you want to go deeper, there’s a great book from Apress, Pro Windows Server AppFabric, details are here. Written by my colleagues Danny Garber and Stephen Kaufman, they do a great job of covering everything related to AppFabric. Regardless if you’re a BizTalk, WCF or WF developer, this book will have something for you. I particularly liked the “advanced concepts” chapter. Great job guys!
