18:30 - 19:00: Sign in, networking, pizza and beer (provided by our sponsor, Postcode Lottery)
19:00 - 20:00: Talk by Scott Pringle followed by Q&A
What is an event? Events are powerful, events mean something. An event is something that has happened, it is fact. No if's, but's or maybe's, but fact.
In this talk Scott is going to take you through some of the advantages (and disadvantages) of utilising events in how you write your code to abstract away side-effects of business processes.
He'll then delve into some of the more complex applications of using events via event sourcing or distributed messaging.
Hopefully at the end, you'll all want to go away and integrate events into everything you build!
20:00 - 21:00: Chat and tidy up
21:00 onwards: Optionally head to pub!
