With 27 days to go until TechEd US 2007 starts, here is the CSD plan and schedule:

 

·         The track name has been changed from “Connected Systems” to “SOA and Web Services”. The change has been made to align with Microsoft’s actionable Real World SOA story. We want to emphasize that SOA is an approach rather than a point product however SOA can be pursued quite effectively using the entire range of technologies and products of the Connected Systems Division.  

·         The SOA and Web Services track objective is to bring participants up to speed with the latest developments in service communication, workflow, and business process management technologies and products. The sessions in this track will dive deep into building connected systems with the .NET Framework 3.0 and BizTalk Server 2006 R2. Specifically, our track will include the following topics:

·         Deep coverage of new capabilities in BizTalk Server 2006 R2

·         Building SOA & ESB solutions with the .NET Framework 3.0 and BizTalk Server 2006 R2

·         Best Practices from real world implementations of Windows Communication Foundation, Windows Workflow Foundation, BizTalk and HIS

·         Introduce Windows CardSpace and Microsoft's Identity & Access strategy

 

The complete abstract can be found here on the TechEd site.

 

I’m posting here the entire SOA and Web Services track schedule for your convenience:
