Implementing Event-driven Microservices | Nikhil Barthwal

Discover the power of event-driven microservices architecture for building scalable, resilient, and responsive applications. Learn about event sourcing, CQRS, sagas, distributed data management, and more.

Key takeaways
  1. Event-driven microservices architecture is a subset of microservice architecture that uses events to communicate between services.
  2. Events are immutable and represent a change in the state of the system.
  3. Event sourcing is a technique for storing the history of events in a system.
  4. CQRS (Command Query Responsibility Segregation) is a pattern for separating read and write operations in a system.
  5. Sagas are long-running transactions that can span multiple services.
  6. Distributed data is a challenge in microservices because data is often distributed across multiple services.
  7. Availability is a key requirement for microservices because users expect services to be available all the time.
  8. Partitioning is a technique for dividing a system into smaller, independent parts.
  9. Aggregates are groups of related objects that are treated as a single unit.
  10. Domain-driven design (DDD) is a software development approach that focuses on modeling the domain of the problem.
