Pragmatic Microservices with DDD, CQRS and Event Sourcing Using Axon Framework

presentation by Allard Buijze

Events are becoming increasingly important in modern architectures. Although CQRS and Event Sourcing are increasingly being adopted, the complexity of implementing it is often highly over-estimated.

In this session, we will first briefly cover what CQRS and Event Sourcing are, and how it addresses some common requirements that modern applications have.

Next, we will open up the IDE and see how the open source Axon Framework can help you get up and running with Event Sourcing in mere minutes.

Once we have the application running, we will scale the application out, where Axon will ensure optimal routing of messages between components, regardless of how they have been deployed.
