Have you ever noticed that there are often several products or solutions available when you want to solve a problem with the Microsoft platform, and so you aren't sure which is the right fit? With AppFabric, for example, there's a fair bit of overlap between BizTalk and Workflow.
Luckily, a group of guys who make a living helping people solve these types of problems wrote a book that I think you might find useful. Applied Architecture Patterns on the Microsoft Platform is definitely worth a read. On this episode, I chat with two of the authors—Rama and Ewan—as they explain what they have learned about solving real world problems with the Microsoft Platform.
