The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Automators

Automating Processes in Modern Hipster Architectures

Bernd Ruecker

Co-Founder and Chief Technologist, Camunda

We’re slicing and dicing systems into ever-shrinking pieces like microservices or serverless functions that should work reactively and are event-driven. End-to-end processes now often require multiple components to be properly integrated — but of course, without coupling them too tightly. In an e-commerce company, for example, a “customer order” might involve different services for payments, inventory, shipping and more.

We see many companies slicing up their core business processes in the pursuit of modern architectures and running into unanticipated challenges along the way. Spoiler alert: there’s no magic fix.

This talk will foster your understanding of how workflows can be implemented and monitored in modern architectures. You will learn about choreography and orchestration. You will see concrete examples and live coding using Java, Spring Boot and Camunda Cloud (based on the open source project and Kubernetes).


Destination: Automation is a free, digital event exploring ways organizations can embrace automation to make their applications and underlying tech stacks more efficient, secure and resilient.
