Windows Workflow Foundation (WF) is a programming model, set of tools, and runtime environment which allows you to write declarative and reactive programs for Windows operating systems. WF is part of the Microsoft .NET Runtime, and it first appeared in Microsoft .NET 3.0. Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) is also a programming model, set of tools, and a runtime that first appeared in .NET 3.0. WCF is a framework for building applications that can communicate with each other over varied network protocols. In .NET 3.5, these programming models came closer together to allow easy integration, including allowing WF instances to use WCF to communicate to remote endpoints and allowing WF instances to become the service implementation for WCF endpoints. This is accomplished by two new Activities: ReceiveActivity and SendActivity as well as a new hosting infrastructure for service endpoints. In this webcast, we look at both sides of this integration to give you an overview of how to build WF/WCF applications.

Presenter: Jon Flanders, Consultant, Pluralsight

Although Jon Flanders spent the first few years of his professional life as an attorney, he quickly found chasing bits more interesting than chasing ambulances. He first worked at the University of Minnesota, building a financial reporting Web site using ASP and Microsoft SQL Server. Since joining the training industry in 1999, Jon has been a part of various projects while migrating from the world of ASP and COM to the Microsoft .NET Framework, ASP.NET, and Web Services. He co-authored Mastering Visual Studio .NET (O'Reilly Media, Inc., 2003) and has been working with Microsoft BizTalk Server 2004 since before its public release, authoring courseware, articles, and utilities, in addition to providing BizTalk Server consulting services. Jon is an independent consultant and trainer, training through Pluralsight.
