Event Sourcing in an Unreliable World

by Jan Stenberg Follow 10 Followers on  Nov 30, 2017

Examples of event sourced systems are often from process-oriented domains, like e-commerce, with incoming commands that generate events. But there are domains without processes that are intrinsically unreliable where we are collecting events from external event sources with transports that are unreliable, Lorenzo Nicora explained at the recent Microservices Conference µCon London 2017.

Service-Oriented Development: Rafael Schloming Shares Lessons Learned with Building Microservice

by Daniel Bryant Follow 281 Followers on  Nov 18, 2017

At QCon San Francisco, Rafael Schloming presented “Service Oriented Development”, and argued that an organisation migrating to microservices must seek to break up their monolithic development processes in addition to attempting to break up the system architecture. Treating newly formed microservice teams as internal “spinoffs” provides boundaries and encourages self-sufficiency and autonomy.

About the SOA Heritage Impact on Microservices

by Jan Stenberg Follow 10 Followers on  Nov 15, 2017

The heritage from SOA impacts the approach and design of a microservices architecture, how we select technology, and also the organisational aspects, Tareq Abedrabbo claimed at the recent Microservices Conference µCon London 2017. One example from his experience is that many organisations still have a separation between enterprise architects and developers.

Designing Event Sourced Microservices

by Jan Stenberg Follow 10 Followers on  Nov 12, 2017

Event sourced microservices is an area that hasn’t been explored nearly as much as it should be, Greg Young claimed at the recent Microservices Conference µCon London 2017, but he also strongly emphasized that you should not event source all your microservices. Instead, he recommends looking at individual services and applying the event sourcing pattern to services that actually benefit from it.
