Welcome to the latest video in the weekly WF/WCF Screencast series.

In this short video, CSD MVP Matt Milner from PluralSight guides the viewer through how to work with Windows Workflow Foundation (WF) transactions, from the simple use case of scoping activities to participate in a transaction to the more advanced scenario of queue up work to participate in a transaction from an activity or the WF host application.

In this screencast, Matt demonstrates how to use the transaction scope WF activity and set the necessary properties on the activity. He then dives into how transactions work in WF to guarantee consistency in the activities, the WF workflow, and the overall transaction that WF is participating in. Along the way, Matt uses console outputs to demonstrate the execution order of activites and the transaction to visually demonstrate what the runtime is actually doing once you execute the code.

For additional information on WF, please check out the WF Dev Center on MSDN and the .NET Endpoint team blog.
