Workshop: "Hands-on CQRS with Axon Framework"

Track: Training: Back End Development / Time: Saturday 09:00 - 16:00 / Location: Canceled

Unfortunately, this tutorial had to be canceled. However, if you are interested in this topic feel free sign up to a similar event taking place on November 18th in Amsterdam. Take me to this event

In this 1-day tutorial Allard Buijze, the creator of Axon Framework, will guide delegates through the process of creating an application based on CQRS with the Axon Framework. Attendees will learn to design the domain models and implement the command and query components. Most of the workshop will be dedicated to labs where the attendees can apply CQRS patterns hands-on.

The session in split, so that in the first half of the tutorial attendees will learn the core CQRS concepts and start designing the domain model whereby emphasis is on choosing aggregate boundaries and deciding on the commands and events to use. The second part is the coding, where the design sessions from the morning are implemented. Delegates will be implementing command handlers, query components, sagas and -first of all- tests.

Target audience:
(Java) Developers eager to learn about ways to implement a CQRS based architecture

Good java knowledge is required for the afternoon labs. Knowledge of Domain Driven Design is an advantage but not absolutely required. The tutorial does cover the basic concepts.

Allard Buijze

Biography: Allard Buijze

Allard Buijze is software architect at Dutchworks, a Dutch company that delivers software development, consultancy and training services to both national and international organizations. As an architect, he is responsible for the technical choices in his projects and investigates technologies for their potential in the diversity of projects Dutchworks does. For the last decade, he has been developing and designing enterprise applications for both large-scale and smaller projects. His focus has always been on clean application design, maintainability and testing. The training of co-developers is a very important part thereof.

Allard has given several trainings in the areas of test driven development, application design and clean coding. He strongly believes that good craftsmanship can only be achieved through continuous and intensive exchange of experience with others. One of his initiatives herein is the founding of the Domain Driven Design Netherlands User Group (DDD-NL). This user group organizes meetings and presentation where members share their experience and knowledge in DDD and related areas.

The last years, he has been investigating and applying CQRS to a number of projects. As a result, he created the Axon Framework, an open source Java framework that helps developers create scalable and extensible applications by providing the building blocks that CQRS based infrastructures typically require. Axon has a growing community and has already been successfully introduced in several projects around the world.
