  • Blog Post: Types, Metatypes and Bears, Redux

    I made a quick post a few months back where I tried to talk about the way the designer works and lets us design types, as well as simply configure instances of types. There were a couple of key points that I wanted to make there in that post: The workflow designer can configure instances of activity...
  • Blog Post: Navigating the WF4 Beta 2 Samples

    Hot off the presses (and the download center) come the WF4 Beta 2 samples here .  The team has invested a lot of time into these samples and they provide a good way to get up to speed on the way a particular feature or group of features work together.

  • Blog Post: Matt and Paul talk WF

    A few weeks back Paul Andrew and I sat down with Ron Jacobs to record this Arcast about WF.

  • Blog Post: Back From Barcelona

    I arrived into SEA yesterday around 3, so I'm feeling a little bit of the 'lag from my week in Barcelona. A few things to point out: Tim has a fantastic "Vista on the M400" post.

  • Blog Post: wf.netfx3.com new rss feeds

    One thing that isn't so nice about the new http://wf.netfx3.com site is that all of the file listings do not roll up into one single nice syndication feed. I want the ability to aggregate all of the files into nice rss feeds so I can stay on top of samples, activities, etc. In order to enable this I...
