The technical evangelist for Windows Workflow Foundation, Matt Winkler, took some time to interview the team that worked to create the Workflow Services functionality inside of .NET 3.5.  Workflow Service allow a developer to implement a WCF service as a WF workflow, and to expose a WF workflow via a WCF service. 
Here we meet Pravin Indurkar, the PM of the feature, as well as a host of other team members from the WF-WCF team, including a rare on screen appearance by forum rockstar Tom Lake (who is wearing a legacy bright orange WinFX t-shirt from PDC’05).  The interview concludes with a quick tour around building 42 meeting some of the other folks on the team.

      One question... Can the supplier shown in the example could be added dynamically? because in real world for a company the list of suppliers keeps changing on the fly and the WorkFlow model must have taken this in care... If yes could you please tell us how to do that...
