WF - Why, What, and How?
You’ve probably read about Windows Workflow Foundation (WF) somewhere and thought, “Why would I want one of those?” WF represents very powerful concepts in the way we put software together and run it. You probably already deal with workflow concepts all the time, and haven’t separated that part out. WF allows you to organize software that has complex interactions, like compensations, and may execute for a long time, perhaps days or months. Microsoft continues to invest in WF -- this is a key technology to understand and track as the .NET platform evolves. Come wrap your head around what WF really does, and how it does it.
