    Hi scott,

    in "Events Home" the May 7 event is about Business Rules not Adapters. will there be an "Adapters" Event later ?


  3. Scott Woodgate (MSFT) says:

    Re: the rules vs adapters stuff, we are fixing the events home. Currently it is incorrect. The talk on the 7th will be adapters (you’ll notice events home has the abstract for adapters with the title of rules(doh!) 🙂

  4. Colin Lee says:

    Hoping we’ll see a rules engine one coming up in June maybe?

  5. Scott Woodgate (MS) says:

    Actually we did a rules engine one in March (search my blog below) and all the web-casts thus far are "on-demand" so you can check it out right now! 🙂
