Brad is an accomplished .NET software architect specializing in Domain Driven Design and Event Driven Architectures. Over his 30 year professional career, Brad has built web applications for Adidas, Kashi, Gap, Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Aptos, and many others. Brads specialty is migrating existing .NET applications to a DDD architecture and EDA without system downtime.
Brad has been the organizer of the San Francisco and Silicon Valley .NET user groups, and is frequent speaker on technical software topics throughout the US, South America, and Europe.
Brad has written a book on Reengineering .NET published by Adison Wesley.
Event Driven Architecture is a way of building small or large systems, that takes full advantage of Microservices and proper architectural design. Using messages as the communication mechanism among different services allows more independence of the individual components that make up a larger system, thus enabling faster development, faster deployment, and additional scalability. Introducing Persistent Messages further enhances the architecture to allow time independence as well.
In this talk we will look at the overall structure of an Event Driven Architecture, discuss the business and technical advantages, and review how to migrate an existing application to an Event Driven Architecture. Brad will present his experiences in migrating an existing application to an Event Driven Architecture, talk about lessons learned along the way.
If you have a large legacy application you need to break into microservices, or you are involved in a Domain Driven Design project, this talk is for you.
We have all heard for a while that microservices are the solution to all of our problems. Now serverless is emerging as an even smaller component of the new way of building applications piece by piece. In our zeal to adopt the latest in architectural approaches, have we given sufficient thought to where they are going or what comes next?
If you are considering building an application with a microservice or serverless based architecture, come to this panel of experienced cloud developers and architects and learn what these technologies can do for you now, and what they will do in the future. Ask our panel questions on what works, what doesn't, and how to prepare today for the technology that's coming next.
