Modern, cloud-native applications typically use a microservices architecture in conjunction with NoSQL and/or sharded relational databases. However, in order to successfully use this approach you need to solve some distributed data management problems including how to maintain consistency between multiple databases without using 2PC.
In this talk you will learn more about these issues and how to solve them by using an event-driven architecture. We will describe how event sourcing and Command Query Responsibility Separation (CQRS) are a great way to realize an event-driven architecture. You will learn about a simple yet powerful approach for building, modern, scalable applications.
