Last night 2nd meeting was just as good as the first one. Richard Broida gave a good overview of some of the key points for the ESB Guidance toolkit, as well as some good background info on having a good architecture base.
There were some BizTalk developers in the room and there were some other ones that were interested on BizTalk. Somehow, the seating arrangement turned out to be all BizTalk developers in the middle section and everyone else out on the sides. ;)
I have been interested on the ESB Guidance toolkit, and after tonight's meeting I have decided to install it and try some of their samples. Of interest to me are the Message Repair block and the Exception Handler block. Will post on my findings on those blocks when I get them running.
