New Courseware in Windows Workflow Foundation 4
November 14, 2011.
Object Innovations today released a new course on Windows Workflow Foundation for C# developers using
Visual Studio 2010 and .NET 4.0.
Microsoft’s Windows Workflow Foundation (WF) provides a framework for creating scalable
applications consisting of independent program units called activities. WF 4 is a major
rewrite of this technology, offering significantly higher performance and making it easier
to create and execute workflow applications. This four-day course covers the latest
version of WF, including new features such as state machine activities introduced with
.NET Framework 4 Platform Update 1. The course uses Visual Studio 2010, which provides
a visual Designer for creating workflows.
This course is designed to cover this technology in a gradual, incremental manner,
with a goal of helping the student to become thoroughly familiar with the programming model
and tools. A great many example programs and exercises are provided. The exercises provide
first a specification of the problem without detailed instructions. Then detailed step-by-step
instructions are provided. The lab software includes solutions to all the exercises as well
as the example programs. Because of these features the course is suitable for self-study as
well as for use in a classroom environment led by an instructor.
Shipments of the new courseware begin immediately.
