What is a Workflow?! Working with Workflows – Part I of III
As part of my Cloudify discovery – I’ve encountered another topic which I think needs slight backtracking, and a bit more of an introduction, to get to the more deeper dive of the documentation. So in this series of posts I’m going to dive into what is a workflow?! And then
