Course Information

Course Description

Integration takes many forms, from simply moving files between an FTP site and a local file share, to complex trading partner connections using Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), and everything in between. BizTalk Server is Microsoft’s flagship integration technology and is used by companies all over the world to solve integration problems big and small.


This course is designed to educate .NET developers on how to create enterprise-class integration solutions using Microsoft BizTalk Server. This intensive, yet entertaining and engaging, guided tour of BizTalk Server teaches developers the core skills needed to build integration applications. Join QuickLearn Training’s expert trainers and learn what it truly means to be a BizTalk Server developer.


Whether you choose to receive the instruction face-to-face with one of our trainers, or attend the course remotely, rest assured that you will receive the very best training available to launch you into your BizTalk developer experience.


In this course, attendees will receive live instruction from one of our expert trainers, in-classroom demonstrations, challenging hands-on labs, and an electronic copy of the presentation materials and lab guide with hands-on activities.


This course includes three of Training’s After Hours modules. These prerecorded videos offer students optional content that would not otherwise fit into the 2016 version of the course.
