“Workflow” is a generic concept that can mean different things to different people – a book author is going to think of workflow a lot differently than a photographer processing images. Whether you are implementing a simple shopping cart or building a complex system to track the review of legal documents, there are abstract concepts of states, transitions, actions, actors, assignments, tasking, concurrency, sequences, and dependencies we can use.

Come learn about tools and techniques for implementing workflow concepts in Ruby and Rails. From user stories with ‘shoulda’, through state machines, to complete workflow engines like OpenWFEru, this is a rich space with a lot to learn.
