Developer Dinner: Windows Workflow Foundation for Developers

Great demonstrations, cold Pizza, warm Soda’s and a chance to win a XBox 360.  A developers dream!  What more can you ask for? (Don’t answer that question) 🙂


Wednesday, Nov. 1st from 6:00P-8:00P


Microsoft Innovation and Technology Center

12012 Sunset Hills Road, Reston, VA 20190

How to register or call 1-877-MSEVENT (1-877-673-8368) and reference 1032315199.


This one hour Introduction on building Workflow solutions will concentrate on the “How to” (demonstration) of building Workflow into .NET solutions, with a little bit of “What is” (PowerPoint) at the beginning.  We will spend the bulk of the time building a demonstration application that takes you from the basics of building a simple (albeit more complex than Hello World) and slowly add additional Workflow functionality, ending with a basic Document Processing Workflow example.

Who Should Attend

Architects, Developers, and who would like to get insight and a head-start on how to build workflow into their applications.

What you will learn

– A brief background as to what Windows Workflow is, how it fits into .NET 3.0 and how it differs from BizTalk

– How to increase developer productivity with Workflow

– How to pass “work” into the Workflow

– Building custom Workflow Activities (conceptualizing Business Logic into Workflow Code)

– Communicating with your workflow

Note: This will be a developer-centric talk, with code and Workflow design for the bulk of the talk (versus PowerPoint Overview) and is meant for a Developer audience.  I will be doing a series of webcasts next month that will give more of an “Overview” for Managers.
