Kent Brown Keepin It Real

I am presenting at my first Code Camp this Saturday in NYC. The matrix of sessions is here: http://nyc.codecamp.us/Matrix.htm

The registration is full, but you can register for the wait list here: http://msevents.microsoft.com/CUI/EventDetail.aspx?EventID=1032289984&Culture=en-US

My talk is on Orchestrating Web Services with BizTalk Server 2006.  I've found from my .NET user group in NJ and other venues that its often tough to get the average developer enthused about BizTalk.  I'm not sure why it is.  Some may be overwhelmed by the fact that it is so different.  Some may feel threatened that it de-emphasizes custom code.  I personally see it as the culmination of a lot of architectural principles I've come to hold over the years.  My angle at Code Camp is to leverage developers' interest in Web Services and SOA by showing the value BizTalk adds in “choreographing” web services and how that helps realize the SOA dream.

Good luck on your first Code Camp presentation. A word of advice, don't just talk to your presentation, get your audience involved, you'll both enjoy it more. It worked for me at NJ Code Camp I.

As for your question regarding enthusiasm about BizTalk it may not be us much fear as relevance. I'm not sure that many people have worked on a BizTalk project, especially those that are members of a .Net user group. I would think they tend to be mostly custom coders who haven’t had exposure to BizTalk hands-on.

But spread the word man. If you think it is worthy get people excited about it.
