Interesting Twist on Auto starting a Workflow with IIS / AppFabric

Interesting Twist on Auto starting a Workflow with IIS / AppFabric

  • Comments 3

Pablo Castilla contacted me about his take on auto starting a workflow with IIS and AppFabric.

WF 4.0: How to automatically start a workflow by itself hosted in AppFabric

It looks interesting.  I read the code but I have not tried it myself.  I thought I would share it with you – I’m interested to know what the community thinks about this approach.

Endpoint Q&A Chat

Also I’m thinking of starting an open chat with the WF4 team.  The idea is 2 or 3 of us get together and respond to questions from Twitter, Facebook or LiveMeeting.  The time zone problem is an interesting one.  If we did it at 8am Pacific Time that would be 4pm UTC – great for Europe but 12:30am not so great for China.

We could alternate time for different weeks – one week doing a time good for Europe/Africa, another week doing a time good for Asia.  Of course we will post recordings of the chat so you don’t have to listen live.

I’m interested to hear what you think about the idea.

  • Thanks for the link, I'm interested too in what the people have to say, maybe they have a better solution, it is not a straightforward one.

    Q&A is a great idea. My team would participate in that, we have a lot of questions, from general ones to others more about details. And also a few suggestions!

  • I like the Q&A session idea. You should have two sessions. That way more questions will be asked and answered. This will reduce duplicated questions and also allow people in the second session to rethink their questions after listening the first session. Can't wait for this to happen!
