Updated Courseware in Windows Workflow Foundation 4.5
September 22, 2015.
Object Innovations today released an updated course on Windows Workflow Foundation for C# developers using
Visual Studio 2015 and .NET 4.6.
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 2015,
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 2015 and SQL Server 2014 Express.
The recommended operating system is Windows 7
As with the previously announced updates, the course
we are announcing today can be run using the free Visual Studio Communnity 2015. (Previously,
the Workflow Foundation course required Visual Studio Professional or higher.)
Shipments of the updated courseware begin immediately.
