Setting up your Telegram channel with Camunda Cloud If you’re a runner, then you know it’s important to change your running shoes from time to time. I’ve run many miles with the Camunda Platform. I’ve used it for my own projects, for tutorials, and taught people how to use it in workshops. Now, it’s time to put on some new shoes: it’s time to automate a process with Camunda Cloud. If you’ve also been using Camunda Platform and are interested in what it looks like to move to Camunda Cloud, come for a run with me. In the continuing pandemic situation, I need to stay informed, and know as soon as the situation relaxes. I find myself checking the Corona...
Automate manual tasks with Camunda and Trello
This article is the third in a series exploring fun, straightforward ways you can control workflows using Camunda Cloud — have a read of the others for some background if you’d like to see Camunda Cloud in action with Restzeebe, without a line of code: Is there an alternative to Spaghetti? How can you Teach a Workflow to Execute a specific task? In the first two articles of this series you learned how to execute workflows, how to control the flow and take different paths depending on the context, and how workers execute their individual code in a task. These examples might have felt a bit too theoretical, so now I would like to present you with a use case: controlling...
Is there an alternative to spaghetti?
When it comes to food, definitely not. Spaghetti Bolognese needs few ingredients, is quickly prepared and always tastes great – at least to me 😉 But what I am actually getting at? Spaghetti Code. In contrast to a meal, Spaghetti Code is not eaten up in a few minutes. It stays, is extended, changes, grows and grows and grows. It is the same with microservices. If you start with microservices, you always have to consider how fine-grained services are cut. In the end, the spaghetti effect shifts from code to orchestrating components. This component must know all the small services and connect them with each other. The same can be found in manual activities that have not been automated or...
Orchestrating Cloud Events with Zeebe
Disclaimer: This blog post is about Cloud-Native software, containers, Cloud Events, and Workflows. It describes a concrete example that you can run yourself using Kubernetes, Helm, and Zeebe.io. You should be familiar with Kubernetes and Helm to follow along and will learn about zeebe.io and cloudevents.io on your way. While working with Kubernetes the chances are quite high that you’ll find services written in different languages and using different technologies stacks. CloudEvents (cloudevents.io / CNCF spec) was born to enable these systems to exchange information by describing their events in a standard way, no matter which transports these services are using (HTTP, Messaging AMPQ/JMS, Protobuf, etc). In such scenarios, where you have events being produced and consumed by different systems, there are common requirements that start to arise when...
Git push to deploy to Camunda Cloud
Using the Zeebe Action for GitHub, you can automate your GitHub repo to deploy BPMN models to Camunda Cloud when you push to a specific branch. In this quick tutorial, I show you how to configure your GitHub repo to deploy all BPMN models in the bpmn directory of your repo on a push to master. If you don’t have a Camunda Cloud account yet, you can join the public beta to get one. Create a client in Camunda Cloud Go into your Zeebe cluster in the Camunda Cloud console, and create a new client. You might want to name it “GitHub-Automation” so you know what it is for. Copy the “Connection Info” block by clicking the copy icon in the lower right-hand...
