  1. I’ve started searching for Biztalk relation blogs recently given that it is now my primary focus at work. I found a few and decided to make use of Addy Santo’s excellent Blogwave to create an aggregated version of the weblogs I have found. Effectively this creates something similar to Longhorn Blogs, an aggregated site on a specific topic. So. You can point your aggregator to my "Biztalk Blogs" aggregation which is updated every 30 minutes (so long as I leave my workstation on at the office, which is almost always). I will try and add an xslt stylesheet to this at some point aswell (Addy, feature request, allow linking to an xslt stylesheet?). If anyone knows of any Biztalk Blogs I am missing, drop me a line The List so far: Kevin B Smith’s Weblog BizTalk Core Engine’s WebLog Charles Young A Biztalk Enthusiast – Jeff Lynch Robert Rijsdijk’s BizTalk Server Weblogs Christoph .NET – Biztalk Baby Steps CaPo’s Integration adventures Gilles’ WebLog Note that unfortunately due to the way that Blogwave operates the "author" of each feed is not persisted and is replaced by the title I have given the collection of aggregations. I have put in a request to Addy for a feature along this line to exist….

  2. While my blog was broken, this great little app was realeased by Andy Santo. An awesome little tool that’s very easy to configure on your pc. It has the ability to generate RSS Feeds from a variety of content sources…
