    Hi Mandy,

    Thanks for the announcement! I heard that there are similar events, May 7 & 8, in Dallas and Houston. As I am running, a website dedicated to BizTalk related events, I want to put those events on my website. Do you know where I can find more information about those events?

    Thanks in advance!

    My coworker just alerted me to this event. The event page appears to show it is full. Is there any possibility of squeezing me in or placing me on a waiting list?
