Microsoft is hosting a two events in Dallas and Houston on 12/8 and 12/9 covering composite application scenarios, governance, composite application roadmap and upgrading to BizTalk Server 2010.
I just got done presenting the keynote, “Building Composite Application Services with AppFabric” at the Microsoft Las Colinas Campus in Dallas and will be presenting once again at the Houston Microsoft Campus tomorrow (12/9), so if you are in the area but missed today’s event, please feel free to register and attend: https://msevents.microsoft.com/cui/EventDetail.aspx?culture=en-US&EventID=1032469800&IO=ycqB%2bGJQr78fJBMJTye1oA%3d%3d
In this session, I cover how to enable hybrid composition scenarios leveraging AppFabric, Azure and BizTalk Server 2010 by looking at a hybrid travel & hospitality scenario that manages reservation requests on-premise by composing services hosted in an Azure Web Role and a BizTalk Server 2010 Orchestration hosted out in the edge (such as a restaurant location itself) which receives new reservation manifests and reserves a table. The on-premise application is implemented with WF 4 as a Workflow Service and is hosted in Server AppFabric and consumes a WCF 4 service hosted in an Azure Web Role which in turn consumes the BizTalk Orchestration using AppFabric Connect for Web Services.
Below is the agenda for both events and I am also attaching the deck from my talk for any attendees or others who would like to reference it.
