Microsoft set the development world on fire when it introduced Workflow Foundation to .Net. Then workflows were rolled out to Azure. Workflows provide high scalability and reusability across applications. Until PowerShell came along workflows required complex .Net code. PowerShell makes workflows easy. Features of workflows include remote and local parallel processing, the ability to stop and resume execution with state, encapsulation and nesting to support high scalability, and event trapping. We’ll start with an overview of how workflows function and how they are implemented. Then we’ll show you how PowerShell’s workflow integration architecture makes workflows in a snap. In a word, workflows for the rest of us. If you are a software engineer, you’ll appreciate how this presentation can make your life easier. For the less technical folk, fear not, PowerShell makes workflows simple to use and understand.
