BizTalk Blogs

One way to keep up to date with the new trends and continually learn is to read, read, and then read some more. To soak in Biztalk with the many changes that are happening in this industry, try reading some blogs: http://biztalkblogs.com/

Spell Checker for your code's comments

Comment Spell Checker

A spell checker for your comments in Visual Studio 2005 and Visual Studio 2008. This is a nice tool, I hate looking stupid because of stupid spelling mistakes. When you build your project(s) the spelling mistakes show up under "Messages" (third tab in the Error List).

Powershell and BizTalk

One of the jobs I hated when doing support was going through the process of stopping and starting services then re-sending data through biztalk. I think with the power of PowerShell, you now can automate all of these tedious tasks into one simple cmdlet. (get-help *-service should be a good start)

Powershell is a really nice feature and I believe anyone that has any basic UNIX/Linux knowledge should be able to pick up the basics real quick.
