Building Event-Driven Microservices with Azure Cosmos DB Change Feed

This meeting will be virtual. Please RSVP for meeting link.

Continuing our talks on microservices, Lenni Lobel will talk about how the Azure Cosmos DB change feed can help you when building event sourcing for microservices.

6:30PM - INTRODUCTION: Housekeeping, open mic and other community announcements & request.

7:00PM - MAIN PRESENTATION: The change feed in Azure Cosmos DB is one of the most overlooked features of Microsoft’s globally distributed, massively scalable, multi-model database service. Similar to the transaction log of a relational database, the change feed gives you a continuous record of changes as they occur. It therefore serves as an excellent event source for a wide range of cloud-based microservices. In this demo-filled session aimed at developers and data professionals alike, you’ll learn how to leverage the change feed and build event-driven microservices with Azure Functions to achieve replication, denormalization, notifications, materialized views, and data archival.

Leonard Lobel (Microsoft MVP, Data Platform) is the chief technology officer and co-founder of Sleek Technologies, Inc., a New York-based development shop with an early adopter philosophy toward new technologies.

Programming since 1979, Lenni specializes in Microsoft-based solutions, with experience that spans a variety of business domains, including publishing, financial, wholesale/retail, health care, and e-commerce.
