O'Reilly - Software Architecture Conference

Event-driven microservices, the sense, the nonsense, and a way forward

Allard Buijze, 4:50pm–5:40pm, Wednesday, February 26, 2020

Microservices, and especially the event-driven variants, are at the very peak of the hype cycle and, according to some, on their way down. Meanwhile, a large number of success stories and failures have been shared about this architectural style. Allard Buijze explains how not to throw away the baby with the bath water and end up reinventing the same concepts again a decade from now.

Allard zooms in on different aspects of microservices. You’ll discover the promises made and if microservices delivered, how the technology surrounding microservices evolved and impacted your decisions, and what it means to be event driven. You’ll explore different ways in which a system can benefit from events, from events as side effects to events being the root of all state. And Allard looks forward to how you can be pragmatic about microservices and avoid some of the common pitfalls and helps you ensure that you get the promised benefits but without the pain.
