Sogeti’s own C# MVP Dave Giard will be presenting “Real World Lessons in Windows Workflow Foundation” April 13 at the Ann Arbor .Net Developers Group at 6pm. He will be giving the same presentation again on April 14 at the Greater Lansing .Net User Group as well.
About Workflow Foundation, Dave says:
Many applications require workflows to manage scenarios such as approval processes and complex business logic. Often these tasks can last for weeks and require status tracking, waiting for input from external persons and systems, and execution of parallel work.
Microsoft Windows Workflow Foundation (WF) assists developers in creating a workflow for an application by providing a library of common tasks, a framework to coordinate those tasks, and a graphical development environment. WF is built on top of the .Net framework and integrates seamlessly with SQL Server and with WCF.
In this presentation, I will demonstrate the basics of WF, demonstrate how to create and call a workflow and the options for hosting a workflow. I will show how to use the task library and extend WF by creating your own tasks.
