One of the trickiest problems with microservices is dealing with data as it becomes spread across many different bounded contexts. An event architecture and event-streaming platform like Kafka provide a respite to this problem. Event-first thinking has a plethora of other advantages too, pulling in concepts from event sourcing, stream processing, and domain-driven design.
In this talk, Ben and Cornelia will tackle how to do the following:
● Transform the data monolith to microservices
● Manage bounded contexts for data fields that overlap
● Use event architectures that apply streaming technologies like Kafka to address the challenges of distributed data
