User Group Meeting .NET Dev

19 Jul

The next meeting of the BAADD San Francisco .NET Developer’s User Group will be Wednesday, July 25, 2007 from 6:30-9:00 p.m. at the Microsoft Office, One Market Street, 2nd Floor, San Francisco, CA.

Food will arrive at 6:30, and the meeting will get underway formally at 7:00.  If you arrive after 7:00, you will need to have the security guard call me to bring you up.

This month Barton Friedland will present on Windows Workflow Foundation + .Windows Sharepoint Services

Windows Workflow Foundation (WF), a key component of .NET 3.0, provides a rich set of services to build next-generation applications that manage both human computer-based workflows. Barton will provide an overview of the WF object model, including the Workflow Runtime and the extensible services it provides. Windows SharePoint Services 3.0 (WSS 3.0) is a separate product from Microsoft that also hosts WF technology. Barton will elaborate on the manner in which WF has been tuned for the WSS 3.0 environment and go into detail as to how stand-alone WF can be used in tandem with WF hosted within WSS 3.0 to compose sophisticated workflow applications.
