But fear not because I am here to be your bridge over troubled waters (Wife dragged me to a piano bar last night, so I had to sneak that in).

Moved My Blog

I have decided to relocate my BizTalk (Well primarily anyways) blog to GeeksWithBlogs. 

I am a BizTalk consultant with Neudesic in The Phoenix area.  I have been working with BizTalk since the tail end of BTS 2000.  I have deployed close to 50 production systems since BTS2002, and recently decided to start becoming proficient in Windows Workflow Foundation (WF).

 

So what else can I say, but let the Blogging begin.
