Creating event-driven microservices

About this video

In this presentation at VoxxedDays Microservices, Kate Stanley discusses “the why, how, and what” of creating event-driven microservices applications. She shares the advantages of putting an event backbone at the center of your architecture, and explores the features that make Apache Kafka an ideal choice.

She talks through a complex event-driven example, and discusses four of the event-driven microservices architecture patterns: database per service, SAGA, event sourcing, and CQRS (command, query, responsibility, segregation).
