Zbchaos — A new fault injection tool...
During Summer Hackdays 2022, I worked on a project called “Zeebe chaos” (zbchaos), a fault injection command-line interface (CLI) tool. This allows us engineers to more easily run chaos experiments against Zeebe, build up confidence in the system’s capabilities, and discover potential weaknesses. Requirements To understand this blog post, it is useful to have a certain understanding of Kubernetes and Zeebe itself. Summer Hackdays: Hackdays are a regular event at Camunda, where people from different departments (engineering, consulting, DevRel, etc.) work together on new ideas, pet projects, and more.

BPMN Support in Zeebe Through 0.16: A Quick Primer
Zeebe 0.15, released at the beginning of February 2019, shipped with new BPMN features, including message and timer start events and non-interrupting message and timer boundary events. The Zeebe team has made significant progress on BPMN coverage in the last few releases, and when it comes to the near-term Zeebe BPMN roadmap, the 0.15 features are the last of what’s planned in preparation of a production-ready Zeebe release in mid-2019. In the Zeebe documentation, we describe each supported BPMN element and its technical specifications. Especially if you’re new to BPMN, we recommend you consult the docs during the modeling process. Many important details are covered, from how to define duration for timer events to workflow instance dataflow. Because we’ve added...
‘How Does Zeebe Compare to X?’: An Evaluation Framework
We often get questions about how Zeebe is the same as or different from other tools and frameworks that can be used to orchestrate workflows. These “other tools” include:
Writing an Apache Kafka Connector for Zeebe (And A Working Prototype)
Bernd Rücker is a co-founder and developer advocate at Camunda. With Zeebe.io we provide a horizontally scalable workflow engine completely open source. We face a lot of customer scenarios where Zeebe needs to be connected to Apache Kafka (or the Confluent Platform).
