Sorry me Blog has been so inactive the past month, I have been pretty busy working on ”The Bloggers Guide to BizTalk”. The first release is out now, and available for free download.
The original plan for the guide was to involve about five people, and produce a 30-40 page PDF file. The response from the blogging community was very positive, a lot better that I expected, and the number of great contributions quickly outgrew the PDF format. The guide is now built using the Microsoft Help workshop, and the first version has 88 articles.
Get it here.
The plan it to update the guide on a monthly basis, and to hopefully build it into a solid resource that will be a “Must Have” for all BizTalk developers. The guide will always be free to download.
If you would like to be involved with the guide as a contributor, contact me via my blog. There are a number of very experienced developers contributing some advanced articles, but it would also be great to have some basic “How to..” articles for those who are new to the product.
A big thanks to Scott, Christof, Lee, Jeff, Stephen, Jan, Darren, Kevin Smith, Mike, Peter, Elder, Kevin Lam and Gilles for helping to make this possible.
Hopefully I will now have time to blog some more content… Stay tuned…
Update 5th October
Quite a few people are reporting that there is no link to the guide in the GotDotNet WorkSpace. It seems there may be a caching problem with the WorkSpace front page, sometimes the release is there, sometimes not. If you experience this problem, try the site again in an hour or two. Hopefully this will not be a long running issue.
