Notes From The Road: 2018 Year In Review

Posted: January 23, 2019  |  Categories: BizTalk Other

Last year I didn’t have the opportunity to deliver 16 sessions across the world like 2017 because I had to slow down my trips, or I didn’t participate as I would or did in the past in some communities and I don’t regret a single second. If I have to describe 2018 in a single word I have to choose: family.

I don’t have any difficulty in selecting the best moments, my baby boy born and I move my family to a bigger house because we now have 3 kids, two beautiful girls, like there mother and of course a mini-me.


So, as you may imagine, I struggle to have free time, but when you love what you do, instead of finding excuses you will always find a way to do it. So in the end, I was able to:

  • Publish 70 new posts in my blog; I wrote more blog post that in 2017, And I just now realize that! And the countries that most visited my blog still are the United States, followed by India, the United Kingdom, and Canada in a total of 194 countries


However, that not all:

  • Deliver 5 speaking sessions:
    • IntegrationMonday |online |The birth of a new SSO Application Configuration Tool
    • XXXX Porto.Data meeting, March 27 | Porto | Automatization Platform with Dynamics 365 | Dynamics365, Microsoft Flow and PowerApps


    • CSI about Microsoft Flow and PowerApps


    • Integrate 2018 | London | BizTalk Server Notes from the Road



And this is just a small set of my contributions because I still publish several small scripts and sample codes on TechNet Gallery and Code Gallery and help in other ways the community.

My favorite’s posts

The top posts that I enjoyed writing or add more fun to do it last year was:

Because of the fact normally people look at me and think that I’m a BizTalk guy but I really do more than BizTalk Server, but I only like to write about real stuff that I use daily and indeed I had a lot of fun writing these blog post and real-life cases.

And of course, to close this list:

Thanks for following me, for reading my blog and I promise that I will continue to share my knowledge during 2019.
