Event-Driven Microservices - Beyond the Fairy Tale with Allard Buijze


We are excited to invite you to join us for two upcoming events. The meetup at 6pm we will share what lessons can be learned from concepts like DDD, CQRS, and Event Sourcing to help manage complex systems. Whilst, during the Technical Workshop at 2pm, will provide a hands-on exploration of Event-Driven Systems and Microservices. There is the opportunity to attend one or both sessions but please register for each session that you will attend.

Our applications need to be faster, better, bigger, smarter, and more enjoyable to meet our demanding end-users needs. In recent years, the way we build, run, and operate our software has changed significantly. We use scalable platforms to deploy and manage our applications. Instead of big monolithic deployment applications, we now deploy small, functionally consistent components as microservices. Problem. Solved. Right?

Unfortunately, for most of us, microservices, and especially their event-driven variants, do not deliver on the beautiful, fairy-tale-like promises that surround them.

In this session, Allard will share a different take on microservices. We will see that not much has changed in how we build software, which is why so many "microservices projects" fail nowadays. What lessons can we learn from concepts like DDD, CQRS, and Event Sourcing to help manage the complexity of our systems? He will also show how message-driven communication allows us to focus on finding the boundaries of functionally cohesive components, which we can evolve into microservices should the need arise.

The event is free of charge.

There will be pizza and drinks between the workshop and meetup.

Allard Buijze: Founder and CTO of AxonIQ. From the age of six years old, he developed a great passion for programming and guided large and small organizations in building efficient and scalable applications. Now, he is on a mission to help organizations implement large-scale systems with ease. He created the Axon Framework as an experiment initially, but when organizations started using Axon, AxonIQ was born.
