How to handle absent Assignees

"I want usertasks to be reassigned if the assignee is currently absent. How would I do this in Camunda?"

As always, there is plenty of possible approaches to handle this situation. One of them begin a Task Listener. I created a little snippet that demonstrates how this can work:

For those of you who don't want to build and deploy this demo application right away, there is also a little screencast below.

camunda BPM Community Day 2014

Last Thursday we organized the 2nd camunda BPM community Day. After visiting Prague last year we went for the home game and invited the community to our Berlin offices. So we put all our desks and chairs and other stuff away to make room for the attendees. Around 65 people had registered and without doing an exact headcount, I suppose that more than 50 attended which Bernd described as "the biggest open source community day he ever attended".

Sandy Kemsley, who also attended, already published extensive summaries on the most of the talks so I am just going to link to them here:
Thank you Sandy!

Personally, I took away many very interesting ideas and lots of user feedback. I am already looking forward to the next camunda BPM community day!

cockpit plugin store

We have Camunda Cockpit as a great tool for monitoring and operations. But roles and requirements for monitoring and operations always differ in our real-life projects - so we allow plugins for Cockpit. In the last 48 hours (on our Camunda hackdays) we implemented a "plugin store" for the existing community plugins - so everybody can much easier try out plugins or see what plugins exist.
