#About Talk
Designing your software around a story!

What is Event Sourcing?

Instead of defining a global data model that fits all of your use cases think about the things your system does. Record the events that occur and then build multiple data models that fit your individual use cases.

Sounds very abstract? In this talk, Leif will elaborate on some side projects including use cases with the hope to encourage you to switch to more event-centric thinking.

#About Speaker

Leif Gensert has been working as a contract developer for more than 10 years. In the last 3 years, he has mainly focused his efforts on Elixir.

On the side, Leif has bootstrapped some small projects using Event Source technologies such as 'commanded' and is obsessed with edge cases.
