2010 Year in Review

I learned a lot this year and I thought I’d take a moment to share some of my favorite blog posts, books and newly discovered blogs.

Besides continuing to play with BizTalk Server, I also dug deep into Windows Server AppFabric, Microsoft StreamInsight, Windows Azure, Salesforce.com, Amazon AWS, Microsoft Dynamics CRM and enterprise architecture.  I learned some of those technologies for my last book, some was for work, and some was for personal education.  This diversity was probably evident in the types of blog posts I wrote this year.  Some of my most popular, or favorite posts this year were:

While I find that I use Twitter (@rseroter) instead of blog posts to share interesting links, I still consider blogs to be the best long-form source of information.  Here are a few that I either discovered or followed closer this year:

I tried to keep up a decent pace of technical and non-technical book reading this year and liked these the most:

I somehow had a popular year on this blog with 125k+ visits and really appreciate each of you taking the time to read my musings.  I hope we can continue to learn together in 2011.

  1. Richard,

    I want to thank you for great work you have done/and doing towards Microsoft community in general and Biztalk in particular. I love your blogs as they are complete in concept and implementation. Your blog posts also help me get a view of the emerging technologies and help me pick the ones I want to expand into.
