Revised Courseware in Windows Workflow Foundation 4.5
July 10, 2013.
Object Innovations today released a revised course on Windows Workflow Foundation for C# developers using
Visual Studio 2012 and .NET 4.5.
Microsoft’s Windows Workflow Foundation (WF) provides a framework for creating scalable
applications consisting of independent program units called activities. WF 4 was a major
rewrite of this technology, offering significantly higher performance and making it easier
to create and execute workflow applications. WF 4.5 contains new activities, designer capabilities,
and a new workflow development model (state machines). This four-day course covers this latest
version of WF, including the use of C# expressions in workflows. The course uses Visual Studio 2012,
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. Optional 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.
Required software is Visual Studio 2012 Professional Edition or higher and SQL Server 2012 Express.
The recommended operating system is Windows 7
Shipments of the new courseware begin immediately.
