Windows Workflow Foundation (WF) allows developers to create dynamic, reactive applications with true object reuse and composition. WF provides the tools and services .NET developers need to add rich workflow capabilities to their ASP.NET and Smart Client applications as well as Web and Windows services. WF solves many common problems that developers encounter when building typical applications with processes that span more than a single interaction. With the ability to fully involve business users and IT Pros in the use and monitoring of an application, WF stands to single-handedly change the way .NET programs are written in the future. This course provides fast-paced exposure to WF to get you started today, and provides information on using WF with the Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) to build transparent services and smart clients.
