BizTalk Magazine – September 2014 Edition (proof of concept)

Posted: September 15, 2014  |  Categories: BizTalk

I miss the old BizTalk Hotrod Magazine, of my knowledge, there isn’t any other type of magazine about BizTalk Server. And the only thing we have approximately to that is the Flipboard BizTalk Magazine that I have weekly published throughout these last months.

You can find the BizTalkMagazine into Flipboard in your favorite device Apple (iPhone, iPad), Android, Windows 8, and so on… or simply through the Internet browser at:

I start this project because I didn’t have the knowledge and the time required to create a PDF magazine similar to the BizTalk Hotrod Magazine, and Flipboard gave me an easy and simple way to share content in a type of magazine format.

Now it seems a little limited and after all these months I would like to take the magazine to a new level and recreate some of the concepts of BizTalk Hotrod magazine, inviting authors to write articles to be published and share other resources like tools, scripts, adapters and so on… probably launching a magazine every month or quarterly.

To try this concept I decided to publish a beta version of the magazine as a proof of concept that now is available for you to download here: BizTalk Magazine – September 2014 Edition – probably the magazine name should be different.

BizTalk Magazine

This first edition contains:

  • BizTalk Innovation Day, Oslo – Norway
  • BizTalk Server 2013: Step-by-Step to implement Unit Testing in Schemas and Maps
  • “INTEGRATE – 2014″– Announcing the Global BizTalk Summit, Microsoft Campus, WA. Dec 3-5, 2014
  • BizTalk Administrator Deep dive course
  • Exposing data through BizTalk Service Hybrid Connections
  • BizTalk Server SQL Agent Jobs

Have a nice read! And If you have any suggestions feel free to comment, your feedback is important.

  1. I would love to make a future contribution (if you decide to support the magazine approach) showing folks how to integrate almost real-time dashboard feedback from BizTalk, using SignalR.
