APAC Tech Exchange Day 2 - JBoss BRMS & BPM Suite Workshop

It has been a wild few weeks running up to and including the start today of the APAC Tech Exchange conference.

Virtual conference venue
I want to start by saying the organization has been amazing and done nothing short of move mountains in the face of many obstacles. Kudo's to Quinten Laureijs for first setting it up for Bangkok, Thailand, then moving it to Phuket, Thailand in the face of a military coup, then having to cancel it there to finally arrange a virtual event to deliver the planned content in the face of all odds.

After the excitement yesterday of trying to present my day one session in the middle of severe thunderstorms, day two started with sun and quite.

kicked off my workshop early in the morning my time for the attendees enjoying the end of their day in Asia. The entire workshop was hosted online using OpenShift instances making this not only a virtual conference, but a virtually cloudy conference.

We adapt, overcome, and continue to teach with or without lightning in the skies.

Rule the World - Practical Rules & BPM Development

With this workshop you get a chance to do just that, unlock the power of business rules engines and business processing for your development projects. We will take you through it all step-by-step, building rules, domain specific languages, using the wizards and editors that the JBoss BRMS & BPM Suite provide to piece together an online web shopping cart experience. You too can see what building an online web shop entails, the rules to guide shipping costs, promotional offers that need to be taken into account on each purchase, and monitoring live events as customers shop in the store so you can react to their activities.

This is a hands on experience that takes you from nothing to a fully working online retail shopping experience with JBoss open source software. No experience in rules or processes is required, you will be guided by the experienced speaker and go home ready to apply what you have learned in your own projects.
