The course is logically divided into two parts. The first part covers the architecture of BizTalk Server 2013. This information is essential in order to deploy a successful application that does not break under load. The Messaging and Business Process Engines are explained in detail, with a strong emphasis on best practices and an eye on performance. The second part explains the most essential techniques that you will come across in your projects. However, to better understand how these techniques can be used in your real projects, they are explained in the context of a Payment Gateway scenario driven from a real project. By the end of the course, you will not only be equipped by the essential architectural knowledge, but also with a sense of knowledge of how BizTalk is used in real life.
