In this episode of geekSpeak, workflow guru Zoiner Tejada explains how using Windows Workflow Services with the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 can make your life as a services developer easier. We also discuss the model-driven approach to service design and implementation. Join us to learn how to build service-oriented architecture (SOA) style services whose contracts are both defined and implemented with workflow activities and how to host, manage, and execute the services. We explore the fundamentals of Workflow Services and taking advantage of the new Windows Application Server Extensions (code name "Dublin"). This geekSpeak is hosted by Glen Gordon and Lynn Langit.
