And … The New Book is Released

Nearly 16 months after a book idea was born, the journey is now complete.  Today, you can find our book, Applied Architecture Patterns on the Microsoft Platform, in stock at and for purchase and download at the Packt Publishing site.

I am currently in Stockholm along with co-authors Stephen Thomas and Ewan Fairweather delivering a 2 day workshop for the BizTalk User Group Sweden.  We’re providing overviews of the core Microsoft application platform technologies and then excerpting the book to show how we analyzed a particular use case, chose a technology and then implemented it.  It’s our first chance to see if this book was a crazy idea, or actually useful.  So far, the reaction has been positive.  Of course, the Swedes are such a nice bunch that they may just be humoring me.

I have absolutely no idea how this book will be received by you all.  I hope you find it to be a unique tool for evaluating architecture and building solutions on Microsoft technology.  If you DON’T like it, then I’ll blame this book idea on Ewan.

One thought

  1. Great seminar/talks in Stockholm (goes for Stephen and Ewan as well). We regular BUGS-attenders are really fortunate to have you guys over. As the lines between BizTalk and the other integration related MS-techs continue to blur I think that most of us will find ourselves needing to know more of them. So I think the subject is spot on, eventhough some people attending (not regular BUGS-folk I think, since Mikael and Johans agenda for the event clearly matched the talks) seemed to expect 2 days of “and in BizTalk 2010 the expression shape window is resizable!” (great as it is 🙂
