Overview

Workflow is the glue that binds information worker processes, users, and artifacts. Without workflow, information workers are just islands of data and potential.

This book covers everything you need to know—from what workflow is all about to creating new activities; from the SharePoint Designer to Visual Studio 2010; from out-of-the-box workflows to state machine workflows. There’s even a section on integrating external data with Business Data Services.
