Ruote in 20 minutes

I had the great privilege last night to do a presentation on Ruote at the third monthly Ruby on Beer meetup here in Gauteng. It ended up taking 35 minutes, not 20 as intended, but I think I got something across to the guys.

Ruote (and BPM in general) isn’t a light topic, but it is a game changer if you use it correctly. We use it here at inX to drive all our background provisioning of services (domains, hosting, emails, internet connectivity, etc) with great success. Attempting to do all those tasks with a state machine would have been futile.

Andrew Timberlake was kind enough to record a video of the presentation, I’ve published the video on this blog.

I’ll also start posting more on Ruote, as my involvement with the project grows. In the meantime, have a look at the following resources to get started:

Welcome to the Open Sourcery Archives. These are my older blog posts, from days gone by. I'm keeping them up as part of the historical record. That, and I'm strangely sentimental about them. Please keep in mind that things most certainly have changed since these articles were written, links to external sites might be broken, and general thinking might have changed.

Regardless of all this, I hope you enjoy your stay!
