Take your first step into Event Driven Architectures

Introducing an event-driven architecture into your application can seem like a scary task if you’re only used to synchronous and data-centric technologies. But bringing together data-centric and event-centric approaches means that getting started with technologies like Apache Kafka doesn’t need to be as daunting as you might think.

You don’t have to start from a blank page to adopt an event-driven architecture. You don’t have to replace everything that you already have built. With a few small and easy steps, you can start to introduce elements of event-driven approaches into an existing data-centric landscape.

In this session, I showed simple approaches for introducing event-driven architecture patterns into an existing application. I demonstrated how to incrementally adopt Apache Kafka, and start getting benefits without needing to immediately build new applications or rebuild existing applications.

My aim for this session was to give practical ideas for how to take your first steps into an event-driven world and start introducing Apache Kafka into an existing data-centric application environment.

This is a recording of a presentation I gave for Tech Fest this week. It’s based on a blog post I wrote last year, and I’ve given variations of it as a presentation a few times this year – including at apidays Hong Kong in August.
