Course overview

This one-day course is intended for analysts and developers who want a hands-on introduction on Flowable BPM and the topics of business process management, case management and decision management in general. It covers both the modeling basics as well as the automation part with the Flowable BPM Engine embedded in a Java / Spring Boot application. 

The course is based on the Flowable BPM Open Source engine, but also provides an insight on what the commercial offering with Flowable CORE, Flowable Platform, Flowable Work and Flowable Engage can provide additionally.
