Brisbane Azure User Group Meeting Last Night

Saw a couple of interesting presentations at the Brisbane Azure User Group last night, including a presentation from Jonathon Rossi from Transmax about Azure Traffic Manager, and an enlightening view into Todd Whitehead‘s experience implementing an Azure solution at Harvey Norman. Todd showed how recent improvements in the platform have relieved some of the pain points, especially around cache management.

WEBCAST: Using SSO for Application Configuration in BizTalk

Recently posted a new webcast on how to use the built-in features of Enterprise Single Sign-On to store and manage your custom application configuration in BizTalk:

There are many options for application configuration within BizTalk Server. This webcast shows how to use the out-of-the-box features of SSO to host secure, distributed configuration within customised application containers.

More webcasts to follow on the Brisbane BizTalk User Group YouTube channel.

WEBCAST: Consuming REST Services Using BizTalk 2010

Although this may be superseded by the new REST adapter coming in BizTalk Server 2013, this first  webcast of mine shows how to use WCF custom behaviours and the webHttpBinding to consume REST services from BizTalk 2010 and earlier:
