Introducing our speaker line-up and the Camunda Community Awards 

Camunda has always been focused on creating an excellent experience for developers everywhere who are trying to automate processes. From our days as a small process automation consulting firm to the powerful products used by hundreds around the globe, our engineering mindset and commitment to our community has always been at the heart of what we do.

Which is why we’re excited to share the final speaker line-up for our first ever Camunda Community Summit, taking place April 27-28, 2021. 

Highlights will include presentations from:

  • Adrianna Tan, San Francisco Digital Services, will explore Automation in Local Government Digital Services in a Post-Pandemic World. 
  • Markus Stahl, Deutsche Post Adress GmbH presenting: Open Source RPA with Camunda + Robot Framework.
  • Plus Krishna Kumar of Walmart Labs, presenting: Process Driven Customer Interaction.

The Camunda Community Summit is a unique, interactive two-day event exclusively for developers, enterprise architects, and process automation experts. Featuring deep-dive technical topics, live coding demonstrations, and the latest advances in process automation, the inaugural summit will be held in an immersive, virtual and collaborative format.

Building on the success of the October 2020 Camunda Unconference, the first day will feature an Unconference agenda, where each session is proposed and up-voted by the Camunda Community to create an environment for peer-to-peer learning, creativity and collaboration.

The second day will feature expert-led sessions highlighted by interactive demonstrations of solutions built with Camunda, enabling attendees to learn from experienced community members and valuable discussions.

And we have even more exciting news — we’re introducing Camunda Community Awards to thank the people working to advance the Camunda community as a whole. These include project maintainers, individual contributors, and project collaborators, all of whom lend their extraordinary talents to help improve the Camunda open source ecosystem. 

If you know of an individual whom you feel is deserving of being nominated for a Camunda Community award, we would love to hear from you! You can easily nominate them using this online form before April 15th.

Whether you’re a Camunda newbie or a long-serving community member, you’re welcome to join the Community Summit and level up your Camunda knowledge, share experiences and ask questions. For a taste of what to expect, take a look at the results of our Community Unconference in October — where sessions were proposed and up-voted by the community. 

Registration for the Camunda Community Summit is open and attendance is free — register now.  We can’t wait to see you there!

  • Contributing to the Camunda Modeler and getting...

    A report from a true fan. Watching sports is a little like using Open Source Software. I know that is a bit of a  stretch, but if you keep reading you will see that both need contribution from “hobby leagues”. By watching your favorite sports team you (maybe unintentionally) tell sports clubs and TV stations that you are interested in their offerings. Maybe at one point you decide to play the sport yourself. By starting to play, you begin contributing to that community. You may not ever be a professional athlete, but overall you start to influence the sport you’re participating in at a small level.  I am a big user of bpmn.io. I guess if you work at Camunda...
