WWF的学习资源-101

 

这里基本上是我学习WinFX的日志网站,下载了WWF SDK,安装和学习完了Lab,一般也会找一些WFF常用的资源,准备看更多的一些信息,扩展自己的眼光,希望...希望很快大家就有项目可以应用到WWF:)

 

Weblog

 

 

推荐Paul Andrew的WebLog,我想目前看来内容是非常丰富的.

虽然不能参加PDC,不过还是可以从PPT中看到非常多的特性,比如COM327,COM325 讲得都比较深入,而COM322比较深入的讲述了WWF状态机流程的许多细节,比如递归组合(Recursive Composition),流程状态跳过(Skip)和流回(Rework),在一个应用中使用多个状态机流程等等特性,建议大家看看

因为WWF作为WinFX的一个核心组件,所有目前的开发环境是基于VS 2005 Beta2的环境下,你可以使用

WinFX Runtime Components - September CTP的开发环境体验WWF和WinFX的其它核心组件,目前WWF不支持运行在VS 2005 RC的版本上
