Gave My Session On Hosting WF4 Within AppFabric at Tally's Code Camp

Just finished my session on hosting workflows using WF4 in Windows Server AppFabric! I actually thought that I might not have enough demos for the session time, however my work paid off last week and I made more than I could show. First I showed how to build a custom workflow host with persistence. I demonstrated that I could shut down the host and pick back up where the workflow left off. Then I moved to building a workflow exposed as WCF. I showed how this was using raw ADO.Net but also showed how Entity Framework 4.0 could be used as well. Finally I pushed the workflow service into AppFabric and connected a client to it. On purpose I added more characters than the database field could hold so that the call would fail. I did this because I was able to work with the monitoring senarios with AppFabric when I got the same error by mistake:(. This was a nice turn into how AppFabric worked and how monitoring could be used to detect the errors that the client app could not see.
