The slides from my big data session at Microsoft TechDays can be found below. During the session, we discussed a lot of the fundamental technologies of the most popular Hadopp distributions including HDFS, Map-Reduce, HBase, Hive, Pig, Sqoop and others. The session was really focused on practical examples and we spent quite a bit of time showing code :)
Towards the end of the presentation, we debated some of the limitations of Hadoop and exploring some recent research materials focused on addressing those. I particularly enjoyed the discussion around Google Dremel which is the foundation behind the amazing Google Big Query engine.
I hope you find this material useful. If you have any feedback about MS HDInsight or would like to know more don’t hesitate to ping me via this weblog.
I have been so crazily busy lately that I forgot to mention that a video of my Kinect for Windows session at Microsoft Techdays in The Netherlands is now available on channel9. The session covers the fundamental elements of Kinect for Windows as well as development best practices and techniques of Natural User Interface applications.
You can find the video below. Please check it out and send me some feedback.

Last week we hosted our annual company meeting for both Tellago and Tellago Studios. When preparing for the meeting, I have to admit we had a very difficult time reviewing everything we accomplished this year without getting a bit emotional.
Last week. Tellago Studios’ technology evangelist Uri Katsir delivered a super interesting webinar about managing BizTalk Server from you mobile device using Moesion. I am still receiving emails about some of the capabilities available in the current version so I figure I write a brief post about it.
As many of you know, BizTalk Server is a technology that has been close to my heart for many years. After, directly or indirectly, being involved in over a hundred BizTalk projects, it still frustrates me the challenges that some organizations experience to quickly diagnose and troubleshoot problems in their BizTalk Server infrastructure in a timely fashion. That’s why I was so excited when we were able to include a BizTalk Server application as part of the first release of Moesion that enables the management of both BizTalk Server and SQL Server directly from your smartphone or tablet.
Why is this important?
Having the ability of managing any IT system from your mobile device is extremely cool but is so more in the case of BizTalk Server. Why is this? Well, BizTalk Server solutions are constantly interacting with external systems such as databases, web services or line of business apps. This type of external dependencies exponentially increases the probability of failure and the difficulty to effectively troubleshoot BizTalk solutions.
How can Moesion help?
With Moesion, you can now manage your BizTalk infrastructure directly from your smartphone or tablet. You can literally carry a BizTalk Server management console on your pocket. Let’s take a look to some of the things you can do.
Quickly monitor your BizTalk Server infrastructure
Moesion’s BizTalk application allows you to quickly inspect your BizTalk Server infrastructure to detect possible problems. For instances, you could easily query the running or suspended service instances or messages as illustrated in the following figure.
Manage your BizTalk Server applications
Moesion allows you to manage the artifacts of a BizTalk solution such as send/receive ports, orchestrations, etc directly from your mobile device.
Fix BizTalk Server directly from your phone
Moesion’s BizTalk interface goes beyond querying data, you can also take specific actions to troubleshoot potential BizTalk Server problems. A classic example would be to restart a specific BizTalk host instance directly from your smartphone or tablet as illustrated below.
And you can manage SQL Server too!
BizTalk Server administrators can also use Moesion’s SQL Server HTML5 administration console to manage the SQL Server instances that host BizTalk Server infrastructure. The following figure illustrates a quick view of the BizTalk Server MessageBox database using Moesion’s SQL Server administration console.
How do I try Moesion?
If you are a BizTalk Server admin, I really encourage to take a look at Moesion. You can sign up for a free trial at www.moesion.com . We are offering a specific discount for BizTalk Server customers. You can apply for that discount by just appending #btsmoesion1 to your company name.

Hus hush: We are planning to offer a spacial discount for Moesion to all attendees to tomorrow's webinar as well as their customers . Don't forget to register for the webinar at: http://www.regonline.com/Register/Checkin.aspx?EventID=1037934
My latest article about enterprise mobility practice is now available in the Cloud Computing Journal. The article summarizes a lot of the lessons we learned during the development of Moesion and that will be at the core of Tellago’s enterprise mobility practice.
This Thursday we will be hosting a webinar to highlight how to use Moesion to manage your BizTalk Server environment from your mobile device. We will walk through the complete feature set of Moesion HTML5 BizTalk management console as well as complementary features of the Moesion platform that can be used to manage your BizTalk environment from your mobile device.
More importantly, if you are a BizTalk developer or IT Pro we REALLY REALLY REALLY would love to get your feedback about the existing capabilities as well as our immediate roadmap.
