The State of Process Automation 2020

With process automation playing an outsized role in powering innovation, Camunda commissioned a...

  • Camunda Halloween

    It’s a very Camunda Halloween, and this project should keep you safe from the Trick-or-Treaters! It’s more than just a BPM process, of course. It’s an IoT project that uses Camunda BPM to deliver the goods. I’ll break this post up into several sections, but you will need (or at least need access to) a 3-D printer to fully realize the awesomness here. It uses a modified Dog Treat Dispenser because I didn’t have the time (or the skills) to design a whole new Candy Dispenser from scratch.
