I'm thrilled to announce that today Pluralsight published my new course in their catalog… you can watch it right now! The course is called SharePoint 2013 Workflow - Fundamentals. This course is available to all Pluralsight subscribers.
The goal of this course is to help people immediately get up to speed and productive in creating automated business processes as workflows in SharePoint 2013. The target audience for this course are developers and power users as I cover building workflows and assigning tasks using both SharePoint Designer 2013 and Visual Studio 2012. There no specific customer focus… everything I show you works both in an on-premises deployment as well as a hosted environment such as Office 365.
Workflow changed quite a bit in the SharePoint 2013 release from previous versions of SharePoint. The new workflow platform is implemented with a new product called Workflow Manager 1.0. In this course you will learn all the fundamentals for creating custom workflows in SharePoint 2013 using Workflow Manager 1.0. This includes using tools designed for the power user such as Visio 2013 and SharePoint Designer 2013 as well as the primary tool for the developer: Visual Studio 2012.
