Two new TechEd sessions

The New Zealand TechEd conference will be running from August 30th through to the 1st of September. Last week I was confirmed to present a couple of sessions:

DEV208: Getting Started with Workflow in .NET 4
DEV306: Taming SOA Deployments using Windows Server AppFabric

I’ve managed to talk one of ADERANTs lead developers, Peter Goodman, to share the stage and the workload. Pete is our workflow & DSL ninja, it’s going to be fun presenting with him.

The workflow session is an introduction, and rather than focusing purely on the technical aspects we are going to also talk about when using workflow makes sense and which problem types it is particularly suited for. There will be demos too and we plan to build a workflow and a workflow service on stage during the talk.

The Windows Server AppFabric session will be a more technical session and I want to cover three areas: deployment (using the Powershell API), monitoring and scale out of workflow services. Most of the content of the session can be found on this blog already but I do have plans for a new code sample if I can squeeze it into my schedule.

Now Microsoft is posting TechEd sessions online and into the public domain after the conference.

Update: Sessions are now available online…
