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 create your WF state machine workflow. The screencast takes you on a quick tour of putting together a state machine workflow - creating the workflow, adding the states, and using custom activities to do the work. As an example, Matt uses the example of processing an eCommerce shopping cart - and lifecycle/events that go along with it. As we create the workflow, Matt discusses custom activities, using states, and handling multiple state events (both listening for an event to happen and timing out). 

As with the 'first sequential workflow' screencast, this may seem to be a lot more to digest up front, but this screencast provides a good starting overview, that we will drill into as we move through the series.
