Vaughn Vernon Uses Reactive DDD to Model Uncertainty in Microservices

by Thomas Betts Follow 5 Followers on  Oct 09, 2017 4

Microservices and reactive systems bring with them uncertainty about messages arriving out of order, multiple times, or not at all. How to react to such uncertainty is a business decision, says Vaughn Vernon, and is best captured by modeling the uncertainty using concepts of Domain-Driven Design.

Event Architectures and Event Streaming

by Jan Stenberg Follow 6 Followers on  Sep 06, 2017

When moving from a monolithic system to a distributed or microservices system, you commonly also move from a single source of truth in one database to many databases and thus many sources of truth. Using an event architecture and persisting all events as a stream can give back the single source of truth, Ben Stopford claims in one of a series of blog posts about events, event streams and Kafka.

Process Managers in Event-Based Systems

by Jan Stenberg Follow 6 Followers on  Jul 28, 2017 1

Publishing events to notify about changes in a domain keeps different domains decoupled from each other, but if there really is a logical flow of events it becomes implicit and hard to follow. A better solution is to use a Process Manager to keep track of the overall process, Bernd Rücker stated in his presentation at this year’s DDD eXchange conference.

Versioning of Events in Event Sourced Systems

by Jan Stenberg Follow 6 Followers on  Jul 17, 2017

A challenge with event sourced systems is that events put in the event store years ago must be readable today, even though the software has gone through numerous changes, Greg Young stated in his presentation at this year’s DDD eXchange conference. If a system can be taken down, versioning of events is relatively simple. The real challenge comes when a system can’t be taken down.
