WCF LOB SDK Talk at CNUG – June 16

I will be presenting my WCF LOB SDK talk I did for the Magenic CodeMastery event for the Chicago .NET User Group on June 16. This is part of a special interests group (SIG) for BizTalk – http://www.cnug.org/. This presentation is great for anyone doing WCF and working with WCF custom bindings. Although BizTalk will certainly be mentioned during the presentation, the targeted audience will be .NET developers working with WCF.
In my talk at Code Mastery I presented on VS 2008 but I may be switching over to VS 2010 and working with the BizTalk 2010 beta bits as part of the demo depending on how well the performance of the demo does in my testing.
Hope to see you there!

CodeMastery Conference Recap

Today I spoke on the WCF LOB SDK and I just wanted to say thanks for everybody who attended.
I was amazed by the low number of people who had built WCF custom bindings and how few people knew of ESBs within their company. Perhaps this trend was specific to the audience but interesting none the less. As promised, I am releasing the slides and sample SalesForceBinding created for my session. I am making a few tweaks to the SalesForceBinding but will be posting it here as a comment later this week.
— Update —
I fixed the links above. With the Office 2010 launch there is a new PPT viewer and all the urls for my presentations changed again.

WCF LOB SDK Talk on May 26

I will be speaking at a Magenic sponsored mini conference called Code Mastery on May 26 2010. Here is a link to the site: http://codemastery.com/index.htm. Magenic is hosting a couple of these mini conferences in the regions we have offices. The site will be updated soon with more information on the sessions and speakers. It is a free event so bring a friend!
I will be talking about the WCF LOB SDK from both a BizTalk and general .NET user perspective. This is a technology that is fairly well known in the BizTalk community but almost completely unknown in the general .NET community. I give some introductory articles below but notice that almost everything is directly from Microsoft and on the heavily technical side. I will be reviewing some of these concepts but will also be approaching it from a practical perspective about how this technology would fit within the enterprise and how you might use it in your software projects.
Here are a couple of good links to get you started:

BizTalk & SCOM Presentation

I just got back from my presentation on using SCOM/MOM for managing the supporting infrastructure of BizTalk. I presented today at the Midwest Connected Systems User Group (formerly Midwest BizTalk Users Group) in Downers Grove, IL (near Chicago). The website for the usergroup is www.mwbug.org. Here is a summary of the presentation:
BizTalk Server 2006 includes many features for handling server diagnostics, issue resolution and message management. Did you know that BizTalk also provides a specialized management pack for use with Microsoft Operations Manager or Systems Center Operations Manager? This management packs provides additional features for tracking exceptions for BizTalk artifacts such as ports or orchestrations. Ben Cline will describe these capabilities and present how they may be leveraged for managing a BizTalk environment.
