The Event-Driven model heavily relies on the QUALITY of events.
Good quality events are:
explicitly defined via contracts have comments support evolution with backward and forward compatibility support code generation breaking changes are well thought Good events are implemented using the right tools:
use Avro/Thrift/Protobuf formats and never use JSON! use the right event broker (such as Pulsar) Good events are designed to:
contain all the info needed by consumers use separate streams for each event type use the right data types for their fields (don’t use string for numbers, use enums, etc.
I accidentally met with the founders of EMPERA blockchain. As you may know, despite the fact that I believe in the blockchain future, I am a bit skeptical about new projects and ideas in this field as there are many pure scams and unprofessional enthusiasts.
However, after reading all the papers and after a deep talk with the founders I am now very excited about this particular project. And I want to share with you my insights (as well as a few skeptical unclarities to be 100% honest).
Introduction into Event-driven microservice (EDM) architecture consists of the following topics:
two topologies content of events three types of events table-stream duality schemas for defining event data single writer principle features of event broker event broker vs message broker single source of truth principle scaling using containers and VMs microservice taxes that we should pay These topics are disclosed in the Chapter 2 of the book we are currently studying:
