Bernd Rücker
Passionate about long running processes
and developer friendly workflow technology.

Who am I?

en: I started developing software more than 15 years ago. During my career I coached countless real-life software projects and helped many customers to implement business logic centered around long running flows, for example the order process of the rapid growing start-up Zalando selling clothes worldwide or the provisioning process for e.g. SIM cards at a couple of big telecommunication companies. During that time I contributed to various open source workflow engines. I am also author of two books and co-founder of Camunda. I am totally enthusiastic about how flows will be implemented in next generation architectures.

de: Ich entwickle seit über 15 Jahren Software und habe zahlreichen Kunden dabei geholfen, langlaufende "Flows" umzusetzen, so z.B. der Bestellprozesse bei Zalando, Auftragsprozesse bei T-Mobile oder Patenanträge in der Schweiz. Außerdem habe ich das "Praxishandbuch BPMN" geschrieben, aktiv an der Entwicklung verschiedener Open Source Workflow Engines mitgearbeitet und die Camunda mitgegründet. Ich spreche regelmäßig auf Konferenzen und schreibe für verschiedene Magazine. Seit geraumer Zeit beschäftige ich mit "Flows" in neuen Paradigmen rund um Microservices, Domain Driven Design, Event Driven Architecture und reaktiver Systeme.

Real-Life BPMN

I co-authored the "Real-Life BPMN"-book, which is currently available in the 5th edition and got dozens of 5-star ratings at amazon. We already sold more than 28.000 copies worldwide.
Get it at Amazon in English, in German or in Spanish.
