Abstract: With the rise of Serverless Architectures, Workflows have gained a renewed interest and usefulness. Typically thought of as centralized and monolithic, they now play a key role in service orchestration and coordination as well as modular processing. With many different architecture approaches already in place, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) has started an initiative to specify serverless workflows to ensure portability and vendor neutrality. In this talk, we introduce the CNCF Serverless Workflow specification and provide examples and demos on top of Kogito, Red Hat's business automation toolkit. You will learn: 1- The what, why, and how of the CNCF Serverless Workflow specification 2- Why using the Serverless Workflow specification and orchestration can improve your serverless architecture 3- When to use CNCF Serverless Workflow and Kogito together and the benefits derived.
