Aberdeen Developers are pleased to present a talk by David Muir on Thursday 22nd March 2012 at the Robert Gordon University.

A Step into Workflow Foundation 4

As software developers, we are currently on the lookout for tools and frameworks which we can utilise in order to improve our efficiency and productivity. It is important to understand what these are, what they can do, why they are useful and most important when we should use them.

This session aims to provide introduction by example to Workflow Foundation 4. We will look at what Workflow Foundation is, what it can do and why we should use it. We will then look into some examples with emphasis on:

  • Workflow Authoring Models
  • Working with Data
  • Custom Activities
  • Workflow Services

As a conclusion to the session we will then look at when we should use Workflow Foundation.
