Once again, I’m delighted to share that I was renewed as a Microsoft Azure MVP (Microsoft Most Valuable Professional), This is my 7th straight year on the MVP Program, an amazing journey and experience that started in 2011 as BizTalk MVP, which gave me the opportunity, and still does, to travel the world for speaking engagement, share the knowledge, and to meet the most amazing and skilled people in our industry.

Bigger and better this is what to expect in this fourth conference that will take place in London. I think we can say with great certainty that this will be the biggest integration conference in the world that will happen this year! (of course related to Microsoft technologies, I don’t want to compare with other integration technologies)

Integration-2016-banner

This will be a three-day event purely focused to the Microsoft Integration stack, so we invite you all to join us in London, England. The event will take place at ExCeL London Exhibition Center and once again is being organized by BizTalk360 in conjunction with Microsoft. Please visit this link for more detail about the event and for registration information.

We will have:

  • This is not anymore a BizTalk related event this is now an Integration event covering a broad set of technologies that will appeal to integration focused professionals:
    • BizTalk Server and its expected new release BizTalk Server 2016
    • Azure App Service – API Apps and Logic Apps – PowerApps and Microsoft flows
    • Azure Service Bus (Event Hubs and Messaging)
    • And other topics like Internet of Things (IoT), Azure API Management, Azure Stream Analytics and Power BI or even Open Source technologies
  • 27 speakers (16 Integration MVP and 11 Microsoft program managers) and 27 sessions
    • The first half of the sessions and speakers are represented by Microsoft product group and the second half from Microsoft Integration MVP’s
  • There will be a paid Live Stream option for those who are not able to attend locally to this event see more about this option here.

This will also be an amazing opportunity to Network, Connect, and Reconnect with Colleagues. Meet some of the people you have been following on Twitter and blogs and network with them and others who are interested in the same things you are. To hang out with the smartest people you know – and I’m not talking about the speakers or Microsoft! I’m talking about you guys! – last reports mention that more than 370 attendees from over 150 companies across 25+ countries are going to attend the event, so imagine the experience that all of us have combined!

So my advice is: Don’t be afraid or shy, don’t wait for people come to you, instead, take your chances, engage the people you want to meet by easily saying "Hi my name is… ". This experience can be a great morale booster for you, lifelong friendships and connections have evolved from such conferences – I’m speaking for personal experience!

Integration-2016-engage-networking

And me to facilitate this approach or initiative to engage people – I will take near to 50 BizTalk cool gifts to distribute among the attendees that probably will ask questions in my session or who engage me during the event to have a simple conversation – doesn’t need to be about BizTalk or technologies it can be a simple introduction or normal conversation Smile.

Integration-2016-gifts

I’m also thrilled to be once again (fourth time) a speaker in this amazing event that I help to construct among with the other BizTalkCrew members (Nino Crudele, Steej-Jan Wiggers, Tord G. Nordahl and Saravana Kumar).

Integration-2016-im-speaking

I liked my session last year and the feedback that I received and based on the time that I have to present (30 min session) I decided that my topic would be one again about tips and tricks for developers and admins: “A new set of BizTalk Server Tips and Tricks”

Session Abstract

It’s critical to use good tools and techniques to maintain, support and produce new working solutions as quickly as possible. In this session, Sandro will introduce you to a new set of useful BizTalk Server Tips and Tricks, acquired by years of experience in the field.

The session will cover the expectations for all the roles: architects, managers, developers, and administrators. Topics include BizTalk migration strategy, content-based routing techniques, Mapping, BizTalk administration tips, extending BizTalk out-of-the-box capabilities and many more.

Microsoft Integration MVP 2013

Microsoft Azure MVP 2016

Thanks Microsoft for another wonderful start of New Year. Once again I’m delighted to share that I was renewed, for the 6th straight year, as MVP (Microsoft Most Valuable Professional), this time after the changes that have occurred in the Microsoft MVP Program, as a Microsoft Azure MVP.

I never thought to become who I am today, it never crossed my mind… I started playing with computers when I was 5 or 6-year-old with my Timex Sinclair 2068 and the felling I had that day is still on my blood… I grow playing games and compete with my old brother, my two young cousins and some of my friends, looking back, I knew somehow that my future would be related with this area (IT, computers). Then I was lucky to find the ideal people at the right time who believed in me and that encouraged me to become what I am today, for that a huge and special thanks to Rui Barbosa and José António Silva… and I am a lucky person because I am paid to do what I love the most!

But it was only a few years ago that I decide to start to share my knowledge, largely through my blog, which began as a kind of personal notebook, it was all about having fun and a way to escape the stress of everyday life…nothing has change! But without realizing it, sharing my knowledge allowed me to grow as a person, to see the World and to meet amazing people and the most amazing friends!

My “wife” says that the computer in an extension of my personality, she met me that way, she loves me the way I am and for that reason she encourage me to become even better, thanks Fernanda for all your support!

Once again a big thanks to the MVP Team in especially to my MVP Lead Cristina Herrero and Alessandro Teglia, to all members of BizTalk and Azure Product Teams, Microsoft Portugal, all community members and special to my readers.

To my family, to the BizTalkCrew (Nino Crudele, Tord Glad Nordahl, Saravana Kumar and Steef-Jan Wiggers) and to all my coworkers at DevScope: THANKS for all the support during this last years!

It’s a big honor to be in the program and I’m looking forward to another great year. And remember Enjoy life, follow your dreams and most importantly have fun!
