Getting started with event-driven architecture using Apache Kafka

With the rise of distributed microservices, the communication patterns for services become more important. By using Apache Kafka, you’ll enable your architecture to move from only REST HTTP application programming interfaces (APIs) to an event-driven architecture. This move improves the scalability and responsiveness of applications and access to the data and context needed for better business decisions. We’ll also focus on replayable events implemented through Apache Kafka.

In this webinar, we’ll address the following questions:

  • What is an event?
  • What are the different types of events?
  • How do events fit in the microservices architecture?
  • What are the communication patterns available for services?


Live event date: Tuesday, February 25, 2020 | 2 p.m. ET

On-demand event: Available for one year afterward.
