Axon Server training

Duration: 2x2.5 hours spread over two days
Time: 7:30 PM - 10:00 PM CET (Dec 15th, 2021 and Dec 16th, 2021) = 1:30 PM - 4:00 PM EST

Can't join all the sessions? No worries, all will be recorded and you can ask any questions in a dedicated slack channel specifically set up for this training.

We have developed a new training, this time to explain more about event storing and message orchestration while using Axon Server. The training is structured in 2 sessions of 2.5 hours in two days. During this course we will take a closer look at how you can benefit from a zero-configuration message router and event store like Axon Server by explaining several options, roughly summarized under these points:

  • Event Store - Why we have built a dedicated Event Store solution, and why it is beneficial for you to use; configuration and optimization options will be shared.
  • Messaging Platform - Having a dedicated message routing platform not only allows you to focus on the business functionality first, but it also provides the means to move to and take the evolutionary microservices route too; how this is achieved and what it brings, will be discussed in detail.
  • Clustering - One of the main features of Axon Server Enterprise, is its clustering capability. It allows the platform to be ready for mission-critical enterprise projects, enabling better performance, high availability, and horizontal scaling among others.

Watch the video below to get an impression of what the training will look like
