Open Source Workflow Automation with Apache Kafka ft. Bernd Ruecker

  • Notes

What started out as a consulting company, Camunda eventually turned into a developer-friendly, open source vendor that now focuses on workflow automation. 

Bernd Ruecker, a co-founder and the chief technologist at Camunda, talks through the company's journey, how he ended up in open source, and all things automation, including how it differs from business process management and the issue of diagrams. 

Bernd also dives into dead letter topics in Apache Kafka®, software interacting with software, orchestration tension, and best practices for approaching challenges that pop up along the way. This episode will take you through a thorough introduction of Camunda Cloud, a cloud-native workflow engine, as well as Camunda’s Kafka connector.
