TOPIC: Workflow 4 Many real world business processes lend themselves well to being modeled as a formal work flow, and using a work flow framework can make the task of modeling much easier. Windows Workflow 4 provides a design surface, programming model, and toolset that make it easy for developers to model work flows, while taking advantage of a rich platform and set of services. WF 4 is much simpler to use and understand than the previous offerings, and is much more tightly integrated with WCF.
We'll look at what WF is good for, what it's best at, and how the WCF integration makes it easy to develop "durable services" and "long running" workflows.

TuesdayJun 1 2010PADNUG June Meeting
Andrew Hay: Making a Mockery of .NET
Andrew Hay is a developer, speaker, author, dad, husband and Chief Belly Scratcher of the family dog. He started over 15 years ago by supporting mainframe assembly language programs which exceeded his own age. A few years after this initial shock treatment, he hooked his wagon to something called Active Server Pages and has been riding the gravy train on the Microsoft platform ever since. Andrew has been an active member of PADNUG since moving from Chicago to Portland in 2002 and he currently works as a developer at Vertigo Software, Inc.
Making a Mockery of .NET In a return to showing some good ol' code in Visual Studio, Andrew will present a blend of unit testing topics. First, a quick level-set with a sampling of seasoned and fresh unit test frameworks. Next, the discussion will advance to mock object frameworks, and then round out the evening with parameterized unit test frameworks. You'll examine tools like NUnit, Rhino Mocks, MOQ, Typemock Isolator, as well as some Visual Studio 2010 tools including Pex and Moles, two clever incubation projects from Microsoft Research.
