I was a speaker at CodeCamp Timisoara, where I presented Windows Workflow Foundation. The conference took place at the West University of Timisoara.
Windows Workflow Foundation presentation
With 8 parallel tracks, I was happy to see participants also interested in WF, a not so commonly used technology from the .Net Framework (full) stack.
On top of the more technical slides from my Windows Workflow Foundation presentation at Microsoft Summit, I have focused more on:
- Business Cases (examples)
- IT Automation with WF based products like Flowster Studio, UiPath
- Insurance Tech
- Microsoft Sharepoint
- Azure Powershell Workflow Runbooks
- latest updates regarding Windows Workflow Foundation and .Net Core (no official port from Microsoft, community effort at CoreWF)
For the demo, I have showcased an updated version of my Rehosted Workflow Designer project – source code available on github.
The Q&A session at the end brought into discussion the supported Powershell Workflow input object types and as a followup I have built a generic example, shown in the script below (download link test-wf-input.ps1):
- the powershell script retrieves the first 10 windows services and sends them as input to the workflow paralleltest
- the input objects can have complex types (not just String, Int) which can be casted
I have uploaded the presentation on slideshare and it is also embedded below:
CodeCamp is an established Romanian IT event (2017 marks its 10th edition) comprised of conferences, hackatons, open days, masterclasses. Even though the conference in Timisoara was a local one, the IT Community from here is vibrant, dynamic and the attendance was quite high (it reminded me of Microsoft Summit 2015).
