My first contributions on TechNet Wiki in 2013: “BizTalk Server: Glossary” and “BizTalk Server: Presentations Gallery”

Due to a lot of work and presentations mainly on BizTalk Innovation day events, I still had not managed to create new articles on TechNet Wiki this year, despite having lots of ideas and ongoing projects.

Unfortunately, with the weather not inviting outdoor activities in Portugal, a lot of rain, I got some free time at home to be able to research for my several projects and also to keep me updated. However, while I was doing this research I noticed that I was constantly looking for the same resources over and over again. As a result, I decided to create these two articles on TechNet Wiki, that although they are not technically difficult to create, are behind many hours (days) in research.

BizTalk Server: Presentations Gallery

Often we need to prepare presentations, whether for clients or for public speaking at a conference or event, and we end up always searching for these resources on the internet to provide inspiration, reference or simply to reuse certain features, design, content or animations. Or you simply like to have these resources for study or future references.

With about 100 presentations about BizTalk Server, since version 2000 to the latest product version: BizTalk Server 2013, this article is intended to be a knowledge base of all BizTalk slides presentations that are available.

BizTalk Server: Glossary

I just finished compiling this article yesterday and I spend all week work on it, and for me, this is beyond a doubt a proper piece of beauty. Everything common term you can think of for BizTalk you may found here ordered alphabetically.

While researching, I also found several Glossaries (here) on MSDN, which served as support to this article.

And of course, if you can think in another term or have a presentation that isn’t there, add it yourself. Feel free to edit, change and add content! And I hope you will find these articles useful.

And the good thing about these two weeks of “work” is that I was two times (in two weeks) award as a Top Contributors in TechNet Wiki;


Of course, this It’s not why I contribute on TechNet Wiki, but I find it funny and prestigious to see our work highlighted and referenced.
