For our next meetup, we will host Moaid Hathot, who will share his knowledge on Microsoft's Distributed Application Runtime, or in short - Dapr (https://dapr.io/), with us. Dapr has the potential to revolutionize the way we write microservices and distributed applications, and we definitely recommend to hear all about it. Moaid is an experienced speaker, a professional developer, and a dear friend, so you don't want to miss his session. See you there!
* 17:00-17:05 - Opening words

Note - all sessions will be held in Hebrew.
About the session - Dapr: the glue to your Microservices
More and more applications are being developed as cloud-native, distributed, Microservices-based applications due to a simple reason. Microservice architecture offers an overwhelming set of benefits: better scalability, reliability, loose service coupling, and service-independent deployments. As usual, these benefits come with a price tag, e.g., concurrency issues, failure handling, retry policies, state management, and distributed tracing. This price tag leaves you less time to develop and focus on your business logic.
The Distributed Application Runtime (Dapr) is an open-source project by Microsoft attempting to tackle these issues once and for all. It is a portable, event-driven runtime for building distributed applications across cloud and edge. Unlike other abstractions, Dapr is language-agnostic and can run on any platform, cloud vendor, or even on-prem. In this session, we'll introduce Dapr and demonstrate how we can use it to build a distributed, cloud-native, microservices application using various programming languages and frameworks, that can run virtually anywhere.
