Integration Boot Camp 2017: September 21 – September 22, 2017

It's that time again. Yep - time for the 2017 Integration Boot Camp (formerly known as the BizTalk Boot Camp). As always, it's free, and open to anyone and everyone. With the new features and easier interaction with Azure Services, we have so many new and different things to show. The key technologies in this boot camp are BizTalk Server 2016 Feature Pack 1, Azure Logic Apps, Azure Functions, and much more.


  • In-person event; Skype is not offered
  • Laptop: Many discussions include hands-on activities
  • Azure subscription: Azure virtual machines, Logic Apps, and other Azure services require an Azure subscription
  • Non-disclosure agreement (NDA): A non-disclosure agreement (NDA) is required; which is available to sign upon arrival. Many companies already have a NDA with Microsoft. When you register, we’ll confirm if one already exists.
  • Specific requirements will be emailed to all attendees the week of September 11-15, 2017.

  1. It will be nice to bring this evening to Microsoft Netherlands too. This topic is much in demand, is needed, but a local venue will be appreciated.

    1. Hi Pinaki –

      Some of the Azure MVPs and other community members started the Global Integration Bootcamp ( as a result of the MSFT bootcamp. It’s possible they may have one in the Netherlands in 2018. Be sure to check their site. It’s is 100% a community-driven event, but I think those that attended this year (March, 2017) enjoyed it. Just something to consider.

      Or, you can come to Charlotte :).
