BizTalk Server 2013 R2 Available!

By John Callaway

If you have been waiting for BizTalk Server 2013 R2, the wait is over. Although this is not a huge new release, if the new features are of interest to you then it is available for download from MSDN as of today. It has a huge long ugly url which I shortened to help you all out. We haven’t seen the specific numbers but the buzz is that performance is greatly enhanced especially for EDI specifically HL7 scenarios. to download the bits, (with an MSDN license of course). for a comparative list of features between BTS 2013 and BTS 2013 R2.

Happy BizTalking!

Guest presenter during Build, Release and Monitor course

By Anthony Borton

During the first run of our new Build, Release and Monitor software with Visual Studio 2013 course this week we had a special guest presenter for the topics of Application Insights and Cloud Load Testing.

A big thanks to Chuck Sterling for providing not only an informative session but an entertaining one as well. I expected nothing else  🙂

The course was a huge success and will be a regular part of our TFS 2013 schedule. Check when this course is running next.

Here’s a couple of comments from students on this course.

“Excellent instructor. I’m appreciative of the real world stories and helpful tips on additional reading material on MS-Build.” ~ Reza

“Very knowledgeable, very willing to answer questions and explain. Very patient. In many of these online courses, I fight to stay focused but Anthony kept my full attention throughout the course. ” ~ Lana
