Overview

Netflix Conductor is a Workflow Orchestration engine that runs in the cloud. It is designed to be totally flexible - your microservices can run in any cloud, in any language, and Conductor can wire them together into a resilient workflow.

Conductor was built by Orkes’ founders while at Netflix and was then open-sourced, resulting in widespread adoption driven by a passionate developer community. A wide range of enterprises from Fortune 100s to startups depends on Conductor for mission-critical business cases.

Orkes is a cloud hosted, fully managed version of Netflix Conductor offering full compatibility with the open source version.
This hackathon utilizes Orkes Playground, a free fully managed browser based sandbox environment of Conductor.

From Devs, for Devs

Task:

From Devs, for Devs is a concept that relies on collaboration and networked learning. Work on a solution that provides a place for that to happen.

As a developer - you often create small automated tasks to make day to day processes easier. For example, you may use some dev tools in this list regularly. Furthermore, showcase its work by solving it using your workflow.

Example: An engineering team has to resize images from a single raw file. To save effort, a dev wrote a sub-workflow that processes the raw file into different file types and then uploads it to S3 bucket.
Example here.

Most creative workflows

Task:

Workflow helps in wiring up various tasks and operators that can present the business logic of an application. It helps in scheduling tasks, for example, creating a list of ongoing processes, the time required to complete a task, etc. It also becomes easy to check for problems, calculate the probability of problem occurrences, and assess specific tasks.

Leverage the power of conductor running in the cloud and create the most creative, out-of-the-box workflows using the Conductor playground.
