It’s the end of August and in many countries Summer Holidays will be (almost) over. The kids go back to school, their parents get back to their daily job.
With 7 BizTalk events in the months July and August it has been just a little bit more quiet, than we were used to before the summer period has started.
For September 5 events are already announced and I expect to announce at least one more. The schedule for this month currently looks as follows:
2 September: Knowledge as a Service Session by Axon Olympus, The Netherlands
This is a customer oriented event where, amongst others, Michael Stephenson who discusses experiences and pitfalls with integration in the cloud and Sam Vanhoutte tells about his extended experience with Windows Azure BizTalk Services.
5 September: TechEd Australia 2013 by Microsoft, Australia
Bill Chesnut takes you in a deep dive during his session on Windows Azure BizTalk Services.
11 September: The Hybrid Organisation by the UK Connected Systems User Group, United Kingdom
This full day event is part of the Microsoft Cloud O/S initiative which lasts a week and focusses on different aspects of Windows Azure. During this particular event there will be sessions by 7 different speakers, including Clemens Vasters and Richard Seroter!
12 September: The Dutch BizTalk User Group by motion10, The Netherlands
This event will be organised in the stadium of the Dutch soccer club Feyenoord. There will be sessions on whether or not to use the ESB Toolkit and a product comparison between the Oracle middleware stack and Microsoft BizTalk Server.
25-26 September: The Bouvet BizTalk Innovation Days, Norway
In Stavanger Bouvet organizes for the second time, the BizTalk Innovation Days. Showtime again for the BizTalk crew, with a number of new presentations and maybe even the introduction of a new version of BizTalk360. According to Saravana this version contains the biggest ever change since the launch of BizTalk360!
These are all interesting events with quite a few great speakers who will discuss many great topics. I’ll be present at both Dutch events. Which event(s) will you visit?
