Event-driven architecture is a versatile approach to designing and integrating complex software systems. These systems tend to be easier to model and build. Event-driven architecture is not a new concept, but as more organizations evolve and add microservices to their toolkit, this approach to system design has become appropriate in more situations and is worth a fresh look.

In this talk we’ll:

  •   Introduce event-driven architecture
  •   Compare EDA, monolithic and other service centric designs
  •   Model a retail system as a finite-state machine
  •   Look at a sample implementation of a retail system
