BizTalk Server 2006 Developer Center and TechCenter
On, May 1st, we launched the BizTalk Server 2006 Developer Center. This
project constituted a complete rebuild of the previous BizTalk Server 2004
Developer Center. For May and June we featured orchestrations. This
included new code samples, an FAQ paper on orchestrations, and in-depth
content surfaced from the core documentation. With the re-design of the site
it’s easier than ever to learn to develop, deploy, administer, and use BizTalk
Server 2006. For July we will be focusing on Adapters!

In addition to the Developer Center, we also launched the BizTalk Server
2006 TechCenter. The TechCenter provides easy access to BizTalk Server
2006 technical documentation, downloads, and community, as well as to IT
Pro favorites such as the Events & Errors Message Center. Each navigation
page within the technical library includes quick access to search BizTalk
Server newsgroups and knowledge-base articles as seen, for example, on
the Getting Started page. Among many things, the site contains:

       Virtual labs
       The end-to-end tutorial as downloadable Word docs
       New content on Clustering BizTalk Server
       Links to the Installation Instructions
       Links to the Production Documentation published on MSDN
