Wednesday 29 from 15:30 until 16:30

Domain events, integration events, pivotal events, boundary events... What are these and how do they differ? But it doesn't stop there: event-driven, event sourcing, event streaming... Are these part of DDD and how do they fit in?

As more and more teams move towards using event-driven architectures, how do you see the big picture without details obscuring your view? In this talk Jacqui will provide a tour of all things "events" - with some terms originating from within the domain-driven design community and others originating elsewhere. Which terms are synonymous? What are the nuances? You will come away with a clear understanding which will help you know when and why to use each of the integration patterns.
