MEA MVP Open Day (My Last Event as a MVP)

Today was a really nice day at the MEA MVP Open Day in Egypt, i got to deliver a session on BizTalk titled "Real world SOA and Biztalk", in the session i have tried to focus on what it takes to build SOA solutions in the Real World and all the myts and facts and SOA.

also i have touched base about the Biztalk Architecture and how it fits in the SOA world and how you could easily use Biztalk as the core engine of your SOA solution.

unfortunately i have planned to discuss a lot about ESB (Enterprise Service Bus Guidance ) that is published on codeplex but i didn't have much time left in the session so i focused only on SOA and Biztalk.

I'll upload the PowerPoint presentation tomorrow as i have just forgot the updated version of it on the presentation laptop !!!

This event is very special to me, as it will be the last event for me as a MVP since i'll be joining Microsoft MEA team after 2 weeks, and as you all know, once you are in Microsoft, you can't be a MVP no more, I'll be working as a Regional TSP in the process group, focusing mainly on Biztalk, it's a challenging position and I'm really looking forward to it.

anyhoow, if you have attended the session, i hope you have liked it and feel free to give me your feedback.

cheers :)
