Abstract: The 7 sins of workflow

Almost every application implements workflows in some form, but in most cases this is done rather suboptimally, which I have summarized in the "7 sins of workflow".

In the lecture I will talk about the 7 sins and discuss possible solutions. I will give an introduction to BPMN and DMN and show how these standards for workflow and rule automation can be used in a developer-friendly manner on lightweight engines. Full of experience from real-world projects, I will discuss different architectural variants, from the classic 3-layer application to serverless microservices.

Consulting the open source frameworks Spring, Camunda and Apache Kafka, I use live coding to show how certain solution patterns can be applied in practice. All code examples are available on Github.
