"Distributed applications are now the norm. Distributed across services, servers, across data centers, and across clouds. On different platforms and by different teams.
How do we connect all of these? It turns out that events are a good tool for this. Instead of tight coupling directly between your services, opt for a loose and flexible event based architecture. We'll also connect this further up the stack to functions and lambdas and see how ""serverless"" computing can be a powerful companion to events, enabling us to create powerful applications very quickly and with a minimum of ceremony. If you want to rapidly build a robust and scalable event-based backend, this session is for you. Glenn will teach you the concepts you need and show you how to put them into practice. "
