Yesterday I attended a technical conference where the speaker talked about BizTalk 2006. I had brought along a couple of friends of mine, both keen to learn the new and cool stuff but lacking a multi-year IT industry background.
So I got kinda embarrassed when the speaker started talking about ESB and SOA and totally failed to mention what these acronyms stood for. Ok, so most of the audience probably knew what he was talking about but can you really assume that? How often do we put distance between us and “the others” (who more than often is saluted Dear Customer) by throwing “orchestrations” and “service busses” at ’em.
I tell you, I can feel myself at the edge of the abyss when I try to explain my latest project to my wife… God help me learn building bridges
