Event description


A full day of exciting presentations from both Camunda as well as actual users and customers, Camunda Days are the perfect opportunity to meet the community and get first hand insights and updates.


10.30 AM - Camunda: What's here and what's next

Camunda is all about core business process automation. Our CEO Jakob Freund will explain how this mission is reflected in the product stack today, and share some insights on the roadmap for both the short and long term.

11.10 AM - Live Demo: Camunda Optimize

Use Camunda Optimize to create process reports for business monitoring, get alerted when performance goals are missed and unveil process bottlenecks.

11.30 AM - Zymergen: Bringing together Science, Automation, and Biology

Zymergen is a molecular technology company that marries data science, automation, and biology to deliver better economics for existing products, and to develop novel products that are difficult or impossible to produce using traditional methods. We accomplish this with radical empiricism, using an integrated design-build-test-analyze-learn (DBTAL) cycle to methodically improve the performance of the microbes we engineer. This cycle involves the production of many biological systems (DNA, strains, etc.), performance evaluation and QC of these systems, and data gathering throughout so that we can learn and make improvements on the next iteration. While there are commonalities when executing this approach for different organisms, there are also many variations. Because of this, Zymergen employs a collection of standardized, composable, and parameterizable processes that domain experts can use to quickly and flexibly define higher-level processes to execute the DBTAL cycle for specific organisms. Many of these processes are executed in our factory using Polaris, Zymergen’s Camunda-powered workflow engine. In this talk we’ll share a bit more about how we create our higher-level processes and use some of Camunda’s standard features to support our unique use-case.

12.00 PM - Lunch

01.00 PM - Microservices Integration: Challenges and Solutions

Integrating microservices is hard. Based on real-life projects, we will discuss how to overcome the challenges in complex communications, asynchronicity and distributed transactions.

01.30 PM - Live Coding: External tasks

With the external tasks pattern, you can develop and operate your microservices completely decoupled from the Workflow Engine and let them pull the work via REST.

01.45 PM - Live Demo: Camunda Cockpit

Leverage Camunda Cockpit to monitor workflows and decisions in production to discover, analyze and solve technical problems. Cockpit is the perfect tool for technical process operations.

02.00 PM - Coffee break

02.30 PM - Camunda for IT executives

Introducing Camunda can significantly support your organization's digital transformation. We want to discuss how IT executives can systematically leverage this potential and which pitfalls should be observed.

03.00 PM - Universal Music: Digital Content Distribution

Every day, Universal Music is using Camunda for distributing thousands of digital content artifacts such as music clips and videos to different marketplaces. In this presentation, we will learn about their technical setup, how they benefit from workflow automation and which challenges they had to overcome along the way.

03.30 PM - Coffee break

03.50 PM - Live Coding: Zeebe

Zeebe is the next generation workflow engine developed by Camunda. It takes workflow automation to an entirely new level, with massive throughput and infinite horizontal scalibility. In this session, Zeebe core developer Thorben Lindhauer will demonstrate how to get started with Zeebe.

04.10 PM - Community Discussion

Camunda is an open source project and to a good extent driven by our community. Share your own use case, ask questions or discuss your feature requests with fellow users and Camunda core deveopers.

04.30 PM - Happy Hour
