Orchestrating the IoT with BPMN in the Cloud

This workshop will take a practical, hands-on look at using cloud-based Business Process Management to orchestrate IoT services and workflows. We will use Camunda's Cloud service to do this. Participants will start with some IoT Hardware (an ESP-32 CAM, as well as some other parts) to build a complete IoT device capable of sending pictures to the Cloud service. We will then use the Cloud APIs to build a series of services to handle the IoT data including external services like Google's Image Processing AI, etc. to build increasingly complex systems to handle the IoT data.

By the end of the workshop participants will have a fully functioning IoT device capable of image-processing and causing an external system to react.

Principal Developer Advocate

David is an Internet of Things (IoT) pioneer who has been working in the field for over 15 years. He is now the Principal Developer Advocate at Camunda. Previously, he was Head of Developer Relations at QuestDB and the Senior Developer Advocate at Influx Data. That’s 2 Time Series databases in a row. If you’re wondering how that’s related to IoT, read about Why an IoT does Time Series Data.
