Book Review: Programming Windows Workflow Foundation

Programming Windows Workflow Foundation: Practical WF Techniques and Examples using XAML and C# - A-

Loved the fact that the book concentrated on examples and gave a well rounded look at what's involved with Workflow Foundation. Great job breaking down the Tracking Services, Persistence Services and how you could tie them together using the SharedConnectionWorkflowCommitWorkBatchService. The only weaknesses were that the examples were hard to follow plus with the typos it was even more difficult; I had to download the source code to follow along, and would've been nice if the book built upon the previous examples. It did … sort of but might've been nice to build an actual mini-application. Everything was basically a console app. Definitely recommend if you're going to be working with Workflows.
