Back to blogging

May 8, 2013

Hi all, I am thinking of blogging more often. My background has been updated on all angles of software development and startups since the last time I blogged. So from here on, I plan to blog on all things related to software, startups and stuff. Looking forward to filling you in.

I’ve found Twitter to closely fit my criteria of blogging; it feels like I am naturally limited to 140 words.

Find me at https://twitter.com/shamod more often.

Hello, world!

"Oslo" was the big news!

November 13, 2007

It has been about good two weeks that I am back from Microsoft SOA & BPM Conference and finally have a chance to throw something in my blog. And the big news is “Oslo”!

What is “Oslo”? Oslo is a Microsoft’s Next Generation SOA based on multitude of technologies combined to create this visionary platform which includes .NET Framework, Visual Studio, BizTalk Server and System Center as a whole. The vision is fairly wide and open and even Microsoft doesn’t seem to have laid out the blueprint of “Oslo” yet. Expect to see several rounds of this technoglogy over a period of another year or two.

The big bang idea behind “Oslo” is a Model Driven Development (MDD) where models are the abstraction implemented directly over the underlying code. Models are just one third of the “Oslo” story and if you would like to read more about it, visit Charles Young’s blog or Microsoft SOA.

If you are interested in hearing me present at the Silicon Valley Code Camp this Saturday at 5:15 p.m., then please sign up on the link above and come on down. The event is free and open to all who are interested in Microsoft and Other technologies. There is already a plethora of topics you may choose to hear from and a free lunch is provided on both days. What more can we ask?

The topic I will be presenting on is BizTalk Server 2006 – Tips and Tricks. Find the link here !

If you do show up, say hello.

BizTalk Service is a next generation Microsoft solution on SOA being built to support thier Software + Services architecture. The solution is available in CTP (Community Technology Preview) at this time. You may download the SDK @ http://labs.biztalk.net/default.aspx.

Microsoft claims that BizTalk Services will be some kind of Service Bus available via the Internet cloud where they offer multiple services like Identity, Connectivity, Relay Binding and Message Flow using their .NET 3.5 technologies like WCF, WF and CardSpace. Not sure yet as to what role BizTalk Server will play into this Cloud Service model.
