In this talk we share our experiences developing and deploying a microservices-based application. You will learn about the distributed data management challenges that arise in a microservices architecture. We will describe how we solved them using event sourcing to reliably publish events that drive eventually consistent workflows and pdate CQRS-based views. You will also learn how we build and deploy the application using a Jenkins-based deployment pipeline that creates Docker images that run on Amazon EC2. This talk was given at the Berlin Microxchg conference and the Munich microservices meetup.
