In Belgium a brand new BizTalk User Group is founded! A couple of months ago there already was some ‘buzz’ on Twitter about founding a BizTalk User Group in Belgium, and now it’s there! You can check their website on http://www.btug.be.
Initially the target consists of people in the more technical roles with in interest in BizTalk and Microsoft Integration products like Service Bus, Azure BizTalk Services, WCF, StreamInsight etc.
Founders and board
The founders of the board are Sam Vanhoutte and Mitch Vanhelden. Lex Hegt, from the Dutch BizTalk User Group and founder of BizTalk Events advised Sam and Mitch with his knowledge of how things work at their Dutch counterpart.
Besides Sam and Mitch, also Sven Van den Brande has entered the board.
