Camunda hackday projects 2019: Getting Started and External Tasks

Written by Niall Deehan on , under Community category.

Each year the coding inclined residents of Camunda towers embark on a 3-day adventure into a realm of big ideas and hacky solutions. Its starts months before when a list of potential project ideas is created. Then as the hackdays approach people find ideas that they like and teams form until the day of reckoning arrives and we all gather together to see if we can realize the lofty ambition of creating a working prototype over the course of about 60 hours.

We had some unifying themes these this year and I’m going to write each post on the projects that are (sometimes loosely) related to that theme. In this post I’ll discuss projects that help users get started with Camunda and also improvements for external tasks.
