I am going to be giving two talks and a workshop at VS Live! in San Francisco.
The first talk is an "Introduction to Windows Workflow Foundation"
where I explain both the business reasons why Microsoft developed Workflow Foundation as well as the technical fundamentals. This talk will help you understand not only how to build workflows, but when it makes sense to do so and when to use some other technology.
The second is "Workflow Services Using WCF and WWF
". WCF allows you to encapsulate business functionality into a service. Windows Workflow Foundation allows you to integrate these services into long running business processes. The latest version of the .NET Framework (3.5) makes it much easier to use these technologies together to build some very powerful business applications.
On Thursday I will give a whole day tutorial
on Workflow Foundation where will dive into the details of how to use this technology to build business applications.
Other speakers will talk about VSTS, ALM, Silverlight, AJAX, .NET Framework 3.0 and 3.5, Sharepoint 2007, Windows WF, Visual Studio 2008, SQL Server 2008, and much more.
