Hacktoberfest is a wrap! We’re so pleased that we were able to connect with so many of you from around the world.

We set out with a goal of increasing the amount of engagement we get in our GitHub repos and you all delivered! From fixing typos to diving head-long into big feature requests, it was inspiring to see the pull requests that came in. Here are a few of my favorite recaps from the month:

  • Two separate community members translated Tasklist into Hindi and Nepali. A third community member translated Admin, Cockpit, Tasklist and our Welcome Message into Brazilian Portuguese… with proper updates for the 7.14 release
  • Another community member closed a 2-year-old feature request for Camunda to support filtering by process variables when using the Java external task client
  • Sonar issues that were causing unexpected behaviors were fixed
  • Support was added for .bpmn2 files produced by jBPM 
  • Someone created message keys which add additional context for particular commands
  • REST API for TaskQuery.taskId() and .taskIdIn() now have documentation

By the Numbers

For those of you who are curious about the numbers, here are a few stats that you might enjoy.

  • More than 70 of you submitted pull requests.
  • For 56 of you, this was your first time interacting with us! 
  • We received 149 pull requests in total during October 2020.
  • This is an increase of 238% compared to September 2020.
  • Six Hacktoberfest pull requests were included in Zeebe’s 0.25.0 release

We hope you had a wonderful experience. We’d love to see you join us for future events, ask questions in the forum, or even continue to contribute valuable pull requests long after Hacktoberfest is done.

  • A Can’t-Miss Opportunity for Camunda Developers

    It’s almost here! We’re counting down the days to the first-ever Camunda Community Summit, a two-day event curated especially by developers for developers. During the summit, our speakers will take deep dives into technical topics, provide live coding demonstrations, and show off the latest advances in product automation — all in a highly collaborative virtual format. Much more than a “Camunda 101” introduction to process automation, the summit is geared toward expert Camunda developers who want to get even more out of the platform.  The Camunda Community Summit offers participants the opportunity to learn, contribute, socialize, and grow. Specifically, you can expect: An interactive opportunity to learn from experienced Camunda community members A place to share your Camunda knowledge and...

  • Camunda Cloud Console Go Client Library

    When working with multiple projects and multiple Cloud Services automation becomes a must. Camunda Cloud resources such as Zeebe Clusters and Camunda Operate are no different from other components such as Databases, or Message brokers, these need to be provisioned for your applications to connect with. This project allows you to connect to the Camunda Cloud Console using the Go language or a command-line tool, allowing you to create automation around when remote environments are created and destroyed. You can connect to these APIs using any language as these APIs are just REST endpoints, but if you have automated pipelines using a command-line tool might be the best fit for you.  This project provides a binary that you can download...
