So after 5 great years being a technology specialist for connected systems, I've decided to take on a new challenge at Microsoft Canada. I’ve slowly been winding down my BizTalk specific activities for the last month now and as one of my final actions, I wanted to let people know about the upcoming BizTalk 2010 Canadian roadshow and the new BizTalk 2010 Certification.

BizTalk Canadian Roadshow

1. The BizTalk team is hosting a roadshow this year in Toronto and Montreal.  We will have Rahul Garg (Senior Product Manager from Redmond)  at both events to speak about the BizTalk and connected systems platform roadmaps. We will also have partners and clients speaking at the event. So this should be a very interesting and useful event for you to attend.
