Getting Started with Knative

by Mauricio Salatino on Feb 24 2020 in Kubernetes Cloud Native Knative .

When building applications for Kubernetes, Zeebe can help you orchestrate several microservices. But how do you build those microservices in the first place? How do you connect them in a resilient way? Do you want to leverage the power of Functions as a Service in Kubernetes? The Knative Project was created to provide answers to these exact questions. While I was looking into how Knative will work with Zeebe, I realized it would be really helpful if I created some simple examples to demonstrate how Knative can help you in your projects.

Complex multi-repo builds with GitHub Actions and Camunda Cloud

by Josh Wulf on Feb 10 2020 in GitHub Use cases .

BLUF (Bottom-line Up-front): GitHub Actions are AWESOME and will change your life, but you risk losing yourself in a microservices architecture of repos, or have to go monolith once you get a few dependent projects or cross service provider boundaries - unless you orchestrate. I show you how I did it in this article. Get access to the Camunda Cloud Public Access Beta here. Use the Zeebe GitHub Action to orchestrate multi-repo builds with Zeebe and Camunda Cloud.

Incident Alert Exporter

by Josh Wulf on Feb 3 2020 in Resources Use cases .

I took a break today from the article I’m working on about “Orchestrating GitHub Actions with Zeebe and Camunda Cloud” (stay tuned, because it is lit) to build an exporter for Zeebe, one that can alert you whenever an incident is raised - for example via Pushover, Pager Duty, or by calling you via the Twilio API. If you just want to see the code, it is on GitHub: Zeebe Incident Alerter. Read more…

Announcing the Camunda Cloud Public Beta: Workflow Engineered for the Cloud (For Everyone!)

by Daniel Meyer on Jan 28 2020 in Releases .

Tl;dr the Camunda Cloud beta is now open to everyone! You can sign up here.

Last September at CamundaCon Berlin, we announced Camunda Cloud: a scalable, on-demand workflow platform. Camunda Cloud is the first BPMN-based workflow technology that’s been engineered specifically for the cloud and offered as an on-demand cloud service. It was a major milestone for our company. It was especially exciting for us here in the Zeebe community because Zeebe and Operate sit at the core of the product.

Performance Profiling Zeebe

by Josh Wulf and Klaus Nji on Dec 22 2019 in Benchmarks Performance .

We frequently get questions about Zeebe’s performance. The answer to any performance question is easy: “It depends”. In this post, Zeebe Developer Advocate Josh Wulf and Zeebe Community member Klaus Nji talk about what it depends on, and how you can get performance benchmarks that answer the question that you actually want to answer: “Can Zeebe do what I need it to do, and how do I need to configure it to do that?

Going to Zero-Scale Zeebe on Camunda Cloud with Cloudflare Workers

by Josh Wulf on Dec 3 2019 in Cloud Slack Use cases .

I get questions about running Zeebe at “zero-scale”. That means workers that consume no resources when there are no tasks to perform. The Zeebe service on Camunda Cloud includes a generic HTTP-Worker that can be used to achieve this. The HTTP-Worker polls for jobs of type “Camunda-HTTP”, and then invokes a REST endpoint based on the HTTP verb and URL set in the task headers. If you are not on Camunda Cloud you can use zeebe-http-worker, or just write your own. Read more…
