Community Day on H22

Introduction to building event-driven systems with AxonIQ

May 31, 2022

Helsingborg, Sweden

Are you a software developer who's looking for deep knowledge you can't just search when scaling code? If so, this is the conference for you.

Join Allard Buijze, CTO and Founder of AxonIQ live at our partner Edument’s Community Day in Helsingborg.

The 2022 Edument Community Day: “How to scale code” takes place in Helsingborg, Sweden during H22. A one-day conference where developers meet experts to address the challenges of scaling code in contexts as different as start-ups and big international projects.

Event-Driven Microservices - beyond the fairy tale?

Our applications need to be faster, better, bigger, smarter, and more enjoyable to meet our demanding end-users needs. In recent years, a lot has changed in the way we build, run, and operate our software. 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? Sadly not.

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 introduction, Allard will share a different take on microservices. We will see that not much has changed in how we build software, which is exactly the reason so many "microservices projects" fail. What lessons can we learn from concepts like DDD, CQRS, and event sourcing to help manage the complexity of our systems?

Allard will also show how message-driven communication allows us to put the focus on finding the boundaries of functionally cohesive components, which we can evolve into microservices should the need arise.
