Advanced Event-Driven Patterns With Amazon EventBridge
Streamlining microservices communication has always been a challenge. This caused confusion and proved challenging for serverless engineers. Amazon EventBridge alleviates these concerns and offers a unified approach to deploying event driven computing. The combination of cloud, serverless and microservices has taken the service implementation to a different level. Though this has accelerated the monolith to microservices transformation, it has also introduced new complexities around the service to service communication. With every new service added to the system, the order of communications complexity also increases.

Though AWS services such as SNS, SQS and others helped to some extent, they however failed to offer a flexible way to enable filtered routing of messages between microservices. This is where Amazon EventBridge makes its mark in alleviating many of these concerns. Amazon EventBridge acts as a choreographer and promotes a hub-and-spoke communication model between microservices. With its flexible and powerful message filtering capability, services can have a renewed way of performing event-driven communication between them. This talk will look at some of the latest developments in EventBridge and the advanced patterns that take event-driven computing to the next level.
We will be serving food and drinks after the talk so please come and join us
