Tuesday January 26th, 2015 Max Technical Training in Mason, OH

January 26th, 6pm at our monthly CINNUG meeting, we welcome Shawn Wallace with an introduction to 'Enterprise' Event-Driven Architecture.

Event-driven architecture is a versatile approach to designing and integrating complex software systems. These systems tend to be easier to model and build. Event-driven architecture is not a new concept, but as more organizations contemplate microservices, this approach to system design has become appropriate in more situations and is worth a fresh look.

In this talk we’ll:

  • Introduce event-driven architecture
  • Compare EDA, monolithic and other service centric designs
  • Model a retail system as a finite-state machine
  • Look at a sample implementation of a retail system
