Featuring Drools, jBPM, OptaPlanner, DashBuilder, UberFire and Errai
For our second JBUG this November we’re delighted to welcome back Red Hat Platform Architect, Mark Proctor who will be part of a panel of speakers presenting roadmap talks on each component technology.
We’re fortunate to have this opportunity for so many project leads to be in one room at the same time, and it’s a fantastic opportunity to come along and ask questions about the future plans for BRMS and BPMS.
The talk will look at how the 7 series is shifting gears, presenting a vision for low-code application development in the cloud - with a much stronger focus on quality and maturity over previous releases.
Key topics will include:
The new Rich Client Platform
The new BPMN2 Designer
New Case Management and Modelling
Improved Advanced Decision Tables and new Decision Model Notation
Improved Forms and Page building
Fully integrated DashBuilder reporting
New OptaPlanner features & performance improvements
There will be opportunities for questions and the chance to network with the team over a beer and slice of pizza.
