Morning Coffee 43

  • This week is the MVP summit. Hopefully, I’ll make it over there and see the Architect MVPs. Otherwise, things seem sort of quiet in the Microsoft wing of the blogoshphere.
  • Saw 300 yesterday on a relatively rare day out with just Jules. Really enjoyed it.
  • Nick Malik describes what goes into an enterprise platform roadmap.
  • Joe McKendrick recaps a vendor SOA suites podcast. With SOA, you can revisit your platform decision on a project by project basis which allows you to avoid the dreaded “vendor lock-in”. But supporting lots of platforms is an operational nightmare, so maybe lock-in isn’t as bad as it sounds.
