This post provides a list of resources for SharePoint, Windows Workflow Foundation, and using WF with SharePoint.
I was lucky enough to present to the Wells Fargo developer group today on “SharePoint Workflows”. If you read my blog, you might know that I recently posted a screencast on developing state machine workflows for SharePoint. Yep, I recorded the screencast while preparing for the demo :) After doing a presentation like this, I like to follow up with resources for more information. After compiling the email, I thought it might provide useful to a larger audience, so here goes. Obviously, there are a ton of other resources out there that I missed. Got a favorite? Add it to the comments below!

Nice blog and resources. My company specializes in providing workflow tools, off-the-shelf workflows, and workflow development on SharePoint. We primarily use ShareVis, which is a toolset that many IT companies use when they want to "configure" workflows rather than program them, or they want end-users to "self-serve". In this way we don't compete with WWF, rather we provide an additional option for IT to extend SharePoint workflow capabilities.
Would it be appropriate to list www.spsworkflow.com as a resource for SharePoint Workflow development?
Thank you for your consideration. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.
