In TFS 2010, the automated build infrastructure has been revamped to use Windows Workflow Foundation (WF) instead of MSBuild. In this session, we will explore how to customize the default build process template and how to leverage multiple aspects of the workflow implementation for TFS 2010 Build.

We will cover:
• Explore the basics of Windows Workflow Foundation as it is used in TFS 2010 Build
• Review the high-level parts of the default build process template in TFS 2010 Build
• Adding new functionality to the build process using out of the box workflow activities
• Creating variables and process parameters that can be exposed to the end user
• Thoughts about designing & architecting your build process for reuse
• Building a custom activity for use in the build process template
• Deploying the custom activity to all of the build servers in the build farm
