Hey Everybody,

I'm excited to say that our MSDN Deep Dives are continuing across Canada. No more 100-200 level info, this is deep technical sessions. The latest in the series is "Building Connected Applications", it will focus on improving upon a real-world application that we'll build on site (some of it will be pre-built to save time)  We'll implement business process orchestration and integrate with ERP systems like SAP via Microsoft BizTalk Server 2004 and Web Services. Naturally, we've included a drill down on the benefits of building a services oriented architecture as well. We'll take a look at some success stories from those Canadian companies who are benefiting from connecting their applications too.

As for speakers, it's the usual suspects :) Microsoft Developer Specialists: Adam Gallant, Dan Sellers and Ryan Storgaard, as well as some special guests we're lining up.

As usual with the Deep Dives -  you'll get a complimentary MS Press book at the event, and some great follow on resources.
