Book Promotion: SOA Patterns with BizTalk Server 2013 and Microsoft Azure – Second Edition.

Book Promotion: SOA Patterns with BizTalk Server 2013 and Microsoft Azure – Second Edition.

It’s been awhile since a BizTalk title hit the market. Colin, Mahindra, Mark and Johann updated Richard Seroter’s well received book SOA Patterns with BizTalk Server 2009. I loved Richards’s book and it inspired me to write a book myself. We have met on several occasions. And last year I had the privilege of meeting Mark and Johann in person in Sydney. Both are enthusiastic integration professionals that with Colin and Mahindra’s aid created and updated this book. Excellent work guys, and respect as writing a book is a challenge!

This book covers BizTalk, WCF, JSON and Rest Support in BizTalk, Azure BizTalk Services, Azure Service Bus, SOA, Schema’s and Endpoints, Asynchronous Communication Patterns, Versioning-, Orchestration Patterns, Frameworks and Tools. That is a broad spectrum of today’s integration capabilities on the Microsoft Platform (on premise and cloud).

If you are new to, intermediate- or well versed in the integration, this book is going to give you more insight into Microsoft’s integration world. The thoughts of these experienced authors and Richard original transcript will help you on your journey to build sustainable integration solutions. Especially now landscape around us is changing fast and integration has become key to success for enterprises to survive.

You read this book in your hand, read on your tablet or computer while enjoying a beer. It’s worth the investment and beneficial to your career in integration. Buy the book online at Packt Online Store, Amazon or perhaps your local bookstore.

Thanks Richard, Colin, Johann, Mark and Mahindra.
Cheers,

Steef-Jan

BizTalk Server 2010 Cookbook by Steef-Jan Wiggers

BizTalk Server 2010 Cookbook by Steef-Jan Wiggers

In my previous post  I promised that my next blog post would be a follow up on the CRM2011 integration example.

Covering a rewrite of the CRM Workflow Component such that it incorporates functionality which uses the Windows Azure Service Bus Relay Services to send over the CRM data to BizTalk.

Well something kind of, came in between.. But no worries, I am still working on putting it all down in a blogpost and I hope to publish it pretty soon.

But in the meantime, keep on reading,  relax, get your mouse or your finger-tips ready to click or swipe a-long as I shamelessly present another blog-post dedicated to another great BizTalk Server book which is a must read…

It has been almost 2 months, since Packt publishing released Steef-Jan Wiggers book “BizTalk Server 2010 Cookbook“.

I had the privilege to review this book together with fellow BizTalk-ers; Randal van Splunteren, Abdul Rafay and Sandro Pereira

Steef-Jan put in a lot of effort writing this book, and well this book deserves all the attention it can get! So that’s the reason  I’ve decided to shamelessly plug it.

Like I said, it has been almost 2 months since Packt released this book and I for once could write yet another elaborate review explaining that Steef-Jan’s book is:

unique in its kind, must have, must read, no-nonsense,easy to read, covering almost all aspects ranging from development, architecture, testing to deployment, targets not only developers, architects, administrators and people who don’t work with BizTalk each and every day etc..

however by doing so I would merely repeat what a lot of fellow BizTalk-ers have been blogging about, so without further a due I present a small collection of links  pointing to reviews of Steef-Jan Wiggers book “BizTalk Server 2010 Cookbook”

To read or not to read, BizTalk Server 2010 Patterns Book By Dan Rosanova, that’s the question.

Disclaimer: Yes I am plugging a book 😉

Almost every day new (technical) books are released and each and every day we as developers, administrators, architects, managers and/or mere mortals are burdened with the decision ‘to read or not to read’ a particular book.

Well as of this October we as BizTalk-ers will be facing one of the toughest decisions ever since the release of BizTalk Server 2006 (I simply love exaggerating it a bit) as PACKT publishing will be releasing Dan Rosanova’s book BizTalk Server 2010 Patterns

In order to help you all with deciding wither to (pre)order or not to (pre)order this book I’ve included the below mentioned ‘Decision Tree’

You might be thinking: “Why is he shamelessly promoting a book?”

Well to answer the above question… I am promoting this book as Steef-Jan Wiggers (BizTalk MVP) and Randal van Splunteren (BizTalk MVP) and  I had the honor to be part of the Technical Review process of “Dan Rosanova’s book BizTalk Server 2010 Patterns” and honestly this book is a must read even if you consider yourself (or are called by others) a BizTalk Guru/Expert as I am convinced that we all as BizTalk-ers can and will learn from it and after all that’s what we all do and what we all crave “Learning new stuff” and the best part of it: Not only you will benefit by learning new insights your current and future customers will benefit as well…

So what can you expect in this book?

Well my former colleague Steef-Jan Wiggers and BizTalk MVP sums it up pretty neatly in his latest blog-post so I will not repeat it here.

Anyway you can (pre)order the book now! It is currently available for (pre)order at either PACKT publishing or Amazon
