Camunda Hackday – the One about Integration

Written by Niall Deehan on , under Community category.

On a freezing, snowy Saturday recently, more than 30 hackers joined us at our Berlin HQ for Camunda’s first Hackday to orchestrate some seriously smart workflows.


One of the best aspects of the day was welcoming a number of Camunda newcomers alongside our experienced users, so we had a great opportunity to assess how intuitive the ‘getting started’ experience is. Plus, it’s always valuable to have a fresh pair of eyes look over your code, so for me, it was interesting to see how developers and architects interacted with our software when using it for the first time.

From contract to BPMN functionality in five weeks

Written by Charley Mann on , under Community category.

“Functionality has been contracted. User acceptance testing is in five weeks. Is it a big deal to implement it?”

What do you do when you’re handed a project with an incredibly tight deadline? This is exactly where SynerTrade found itself – with just five weeks to deliver a seriously complex approval workflow for a global financial client.
