Using Camunda on Kubernetes through Operators

Surush Samani, CloudNative Labs

In this session Surush will give a demo on how to use Operators on Kubernetes to deploy a camunda engine and maintain it.

Exploring Automation in Local Government Digital Services in a Post-Pandemic World

 

Adrianna Tan, San Francisco Digital Services

Local government has many moving parts, complex workflows, data routing and security concerns, and a general difficulty in buying and using new software. Building bespoke, custom software for each and every local government effort is also time-consuming and not a great use of public resources.

 

In this community presentation, San Francisco’s director of product management will showcase the latest thinking on how automation, with tools like Camunda, can be used to simplify and improve existing needs as well as address future problems.”

Boosting Your Productivity with the Camunda Platform 7.15 Release

 

Martin Stamm, Nikola Koevski, Tobias Metzke-Bernstein, & Anton von Weltzien, Camunda

We just released Camunda Platform 7.15, which is designed to make process automation faster, easier, more efficient, and more enjoyable for everyone who contributes to automation projects. It’s full of features that help you share reusable task templates, handle BPMN errors, manage DMN tables, orchestrate RPA bots, and more—plus new Spring Boot capabilities and interactive API docs. Join this session for live demos of selected 7.15 features that will save you time and effort.

A unified tasklist in microservices!

 

Stephan Pelikan, WDW eLab GmbH

 

A microservice architecture can help break down the complexity of a company’s workflow landscape into manageable parts. However, for the everyday business operations, employees now have to work on user tasks opened in the context of workflows of various Camunda microservices. I show how one can turn the distributed task forms and UI chunks into a good user experience of a unified, single tasklist.

The great lumberghini – a never ending process

 

Jan Galinski, Holisticon

Come along for the ride as we build a BPMN perpetuum mobile.

Technical Deep-Dive for Camunda Cloud

 

Felix Müller & Sebastian Menski, Camunda

If you’ve looked at our blogs or our forums recently, you’ve heard a lot about Camunda Cloud. We’re working towards making Camunda Cloud Generally Available in Q2 2021. We’re excited to deliver the first on-demand process automation as a service solution with a horizontally scalable workflow engine, based on the ISO standard BPMN, including built-in tools for collaborative modeling, operations and analytics. This session will help you learn more about Camunda Cloud, why we built it, a technical deep dive, as well as an in-depth product demo.

Scaffolding WebApps with Camunda and JHipster

 

Ulisses Telemaco, AgileKIP & Toacy Oliveira, University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

In this presentation we will expose the Process-Aware JHipster/Camunda blueprint, a low-code approach to scaffold process aware web applications based on a reference architecture that integrates SpringBoot, VueJS, and Camunda. Our tool takes a BPMN model and a bespoke configuration file to generate the WebApp structure, its forms, database connection, REST APIs, Authentication, etc.

Testing DMN Tables Automatically

 

Pascal Mengelt, Finnova

One key feature of DMN tables is that they enable business people to provide Business Rules in an intuitive way – like creating an Excel sheet. As a developer you get the DMNs and you have to integrate them into the BPMN-Process. But how can you make sure that the DMN tables work as expected? With this in mind I’ve started the DMN Table Tester Project. Let me show you how you can test your DMN Tables in no time and get the confidence that they won’t blow up in production. As a bonus:

 

  • The DMN Tester helps you to collaborate with the business.
  • The resulting Test Cases can easily be integrated in your Continuous Integration Pipeline.
  • You can even develop your DMN Tables in a Test-Driven way.

Tips on how to build Camunda Run for production

 

Miklas Boskamp, Camunda

Camunda Run is the most recent addition to the list of Camunda Platform distributions. It combines extensive configurability with simplicity while making Camunda Platform more accessible to non-Java developers.

In this talk I will demonstrate how to solve some of the most common problems we see users face like securing your REST API, enabling CORS and more. We will have a closer look at new Run features involving OpenAPI and explore different ways to configure Camunda Run to make it ready for production.

Integrating Camunda and Keycloak

 

Gunnar von der Beck, Accso – Accelerated Solutions GmbH

This tech focused talk will show you ways on how to integrate Camunda with Keycloak. From the direct coupling of the Camunda internal identity management with Keycloak up to Single Sign On and token-based authentication at the REST interface. Live demo included.

Predictive Process Monitoring Made Easy

 

Stefan Hill & Nico Bartmann, University of Koblenz-Landau

Stefan and Nico will present a plugin that equips Camunda with machine learning techniques for predictive process monitoring. Features include:

  • -Display activity, time and risk prediction in the Cockpit view
  • Training, version control and parametrization of ML algorithms
  • Ensemble Learning – Easy expandability in means of predictions types, algorithms
  • Automated hyperparameter optimization

Your processes are art!

 

Nele Uhlemann & Adam Urban, Camunda

We think Generative Art is great! We were looking for a way to combine BPMN and Generative Art. And that’s what our project has become. We show you how art is generated from your BPMN processes. Of course, we also used a process for the implementation. This makes it easy to understand how the final picture is generated and gives you an inside how generative art works. Learn in our talk how we modeled the process and how it is finally executed in Camunda Cloud. The result is finally posted as a tweet.

 

This talk is intended as a hands-on talk, with concrete examples in NodeJS, how service workers register to the process, how the flow is controlled and how the process is designed.

Open Source RPA with Camunda + Robot Framework

 

Markus Stahl, Deutsche Post Adress GmbH

Robot Framework is an open source, keyword driven automation framework once exclusively famous among test automation engineers. Its main feature is an abstraction layer to python modules allowing developers to automate tasks with as little low-code as they like.

 

Such automated tasks need to be orchestrated and streamlined in a process for which Camunda is obviously the perfect match. In this demo I’d like present our open source contribution providing a bridge between Camunda and Robot Framework – and reason how this combination outpaces common commercial RPA platforms.

Process Driven Customer Interaction

 

Krishna Kumar, Walmart Labs

Combining both Customer-Centric and Process-Centric approaches and developing a dynamic user interaction catering to varying partner business process flows. The talk will explain how camunda BPM helped us grow our wireless business.

The making of token simulation – Understanding bpmn-js extensibility one token at a time

 

Nico Rehwaldt, Lead Developer, bpmn.io

In this talk I will present bpmn-js-token-simulation, one of the more powerful bpmn-js editor extensions. We’ll dive into how it is built to do what it does and understand the extension mechanisms that make bpmn-js such a powerful foundation for your next custom #BPMN editor.
