Omaha .NET Users Group June Meeting
Start Time: June 24 2010, 6:00 PM

Posted by mruwe at May 28 2010, 7:23 AM

 **Fellow .Net Users,

**

Last month’s excellent discussion on WCF from our INETTA speaker Brian Noyes contained some really valuable tips about best practice when building out SOA architectures using WCF.  This month’s meeting is set to be equally fascinating.  We are delighted to have Matt Milner join us from Pluralsight this month to discuss the next version of Windows Workflow Foundation.

Our next .NET Users Group meeting will be held on Thursday, June 24th, at 6:00pm (food will be provided 15 to 20 minutes prior to the start of the meeting).

**Topic:

**Session:  Windows Workflow 4 – from Hello World to Real World in one hour

In this session, you will get a fast introduction to the programming model in WF4, and quickly move through several features, with a focus on using the technology in your applications. Invoke workflows from web forms and MVC applications; build workflow services, and create truly reusable components. See how WF fits in with the rest of the .NET framework with which you are already familiar.

Food, Giveaways, Great Information:
