A couple of weeks ago, I presented at the Knative Meetup (Video, Slides) about how you can leverage the Cloud Native workflow engine Zeebe to understand, enhance and orchestrate your applications that are already using CloudEvents.
I wanted to expand a bit on how these tools can help you gain a deeper understanding of how your distributed applications are working.
You can find the Demo application, installation instructions, and some videos of the application and the tools in action on GitHub.
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.
