About this meet-up

Welcome to the first meet-up in Pretoria as we discuss mixing choreography and orchestration in a microservice architecture to derive  significant benefits. Join Thomas and Andreas as they explore how you can build a clean, loosely-coupled architecture featuring Zeebe, Kafka and our domain services. This talk will cover both theory as well as practical examples written in Java, so you can walk away knowing which architectural approach to choose.

Maria Alcantara from Spain, Camunda Community Manager discusses Camunda's Educational License Program and how it aims to enable people and organizations to teach BPMN and process automation to others by giving them access in African Universities. African Universities can use this license program in their teaching initiatives.

The event also showcases use of Camunda  to  orchestrate hospital surgery processes using Camunda 8, and Generative AI and connectors. Eezimedz is a medical adminstration workflow meant for rural areas with low network areas in Zimbabwe and South Africa. Nqobile Ndaba, Danai Tobaiwa and Mark Bhunu from KaribuTech AI  will take you through the journey.
