So, here's the deal : you want to run an event (say a hackfest). You have done this a few times, you know the deal... but - do others ? You figure, no stress, I'll just write a real-life playbook for running this thing, with a list of tasks and things to keep in mind at various stages of the event, a-la Software Carpentry. You start writing a bunch of checklists, making a list of tools you'll need... next you're coding up the preparation of the event - fork website repo, update vars, deploy, template out emails, pull in data, fire off updates, run checks, open issues, close issues... it gets kinda hot in the kitchen, but you figure : "I got this".
Then you realise you're working on a real life workflow, with all kinds of links between nodes (actions), conditions, repetitions etc - and it would be nice to have it coded up into something that can be visualised and executed.
This is one for @biocrusoe. The workflow I have in mind is mostly interactions with REST APIs, via execution of ruby scripts. These scripts try to encode "real-life" scripts (like, the ones that actors have). Does anyone know about running workflows IRL ?
