PRESENTER: Brad Brown
An event-driven architecture (EDA) uses events to communicate and coordinate between decoupled services. Applications built using event-driven principles can be highly scalable, resilient, and extensible - essential qualities for large modern applications. These architectures also align with and take advantage of the capabilities of modern cloud providers.
EDA is an evolution of architecture, from tiered to SOA (Service-Oriented Architecture) to microservices and now to event-driven. They all have their place, and EDA offers greater reliability, extensibility, and robustness - at the cost of additional complexity that needs to be understood and managed.
In this 1-hour webinar, Brad Brown discusses the what, why, and how of event-driven architectures. Attendees learn:
- What makes an architecture "event-driven”
- Why event-driven architectures are important and the problems they solve
- How they work
- What the complexities and challenges of event-driven architectures are
- How to make good choices when deciding on your next architecture
Audience: Solution architects, software engineers, designers, and developers would all benefit from this webinar.
Prerequisites: No prior experience is needed.
Duration: 60 minutes
