Moving to Camunda Cloud
Some background I’ve written a bit about using Camunda to do all sorts of things from automating IoT processes to helping with the management of a Slack community. Ok, so I haven’t written about all of those things, but I’ve certainly done them. In all of those projects I’ve used Camunda Platform 7 to deploy and run my processes, but most of the actual work was done by external tasks which I wrote in Golang.

Automating IoT With Camunda

It being COVID-times, I of course built a Camunda and IoT integration to evaluate costumes and deliver candy. I am sort of well-known for doing weird, pointless IoT projects like this one and this one, and this one.

A Proof of Concept for Camunda Platform BPMN with IoT Abstract Looking to bring Camunda to the attention of the IoT Community by completing a larger IoT/Camunda Proof of Concept Project. This would entail an IoT Build, using Camunda Platform, documentation, a blog post, and promotion to the wider IoT Community. Why pursue this project In many of my initial discussions when joining the company, IoT was mentioned quite frequently as an important, but as-yet untapped market for Camunda Platform.

Swagger API access with Camunda Platform
Have you ever fired up the Camunda Platform Docker instance and wished you could do live-calls to the API via a swagger server? We have! And like most things we wish we could do, we go out and make it happen. Coming Soon To be clear, this integration is coming to the official Camunda Platform Docker container with release 7.15. It’s just not ready yet. So this is really more of an interim solution rather than the be-all and end-all solution, but it works, and it makes sending API calls to a live instance of Camunda Platform a lot easier.

Letters to Santa – Automating Joy to the World, At Scale
It’s that time of year again. The time when the world’s largest order fulfillment operation experiences its heaviest load. No, not Amazon - we’re talking about Santa Claus, Inc. - the largest logistics company in the world, with a 24-hour global delivery window at peak load. This year is different, however. Earlier this year, Saint Nick clicked on an ad on his Facebook feed, one promising a digital nomad lifestyle through automating his business.
