Building Event-Driven Microservices with Azure Cosmos DB Change Feed

Due to work from home and social distancing rules now in place, TVUG will be holding meetings online for the next few months. We look forward to seeing everyone in person, but for right now let's stay safe. This session will be held online, via Microsoft Teams. We'll be starting at an earlier time, 5:30 PM. If your company already uses Teams, you should be able to use your installed copy of Teams, otherwise, just use the web version. When you register for the event, you'll see the link to the event. Azure Cosmos DB is rapidly growing in popularity, and for good reason. Microsoft’s globally distributed, multi-model database service is massively scalable, fully indexed, and exposes multiple APIs. Throw in tunable consistency, a server-side programming model, along with[masked]% SLAs, and it’s easy to see why Cosmos DB is winning the hearts of developers and solution architects alike. Yet still, the change feed is one of the most overlooked features in Cosmos DB. This little gem maintains a persistent record of changes as they occur, and provides a reliable mechanism to consume a continuous and incremental feed of changes, as documents are actively written or modified to the database. In this session, learn how the change feed paves an easy path to build advanced event-driven solutions for replication, denormalization, microservices, real-time stream processing, and data archival. Presenter: Leonard Lobel, CTO of Sleek Technologies, Inc 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.
