Kafka for Microservices: Building Event-Driven Applications


Sessions Available On-demand

Welcome to the microservices era. As application architecture continues to shift from monolithic systems to more flexible approaches, using Apache Kafka® for microservices offers a crucial step forward in future-proofing mission-critical applications.

Ready to learn why and how to use Kafka microservices to migrate to an event-driven architecture? Register for this 3-part series introducing key concepts, use cases, and best practices for finding success with Kafka in microservices:

  • Session 1: The Data Dichotomy
  • Session 2: Building Event-Driven Services
  • Session 3: Putting the Micro into Microservices

By using Kafka with microservices, you can take better advantage of their key advantage: enabling flexible and scalable application development.

Microservices separate monolithic systems into a collection of independent, self-contained services that allow easier deployment, testing, and maintenance. But microservices also have limited options to prevent downtime—including automation and DevOps practices—which often only mitigate inevitable failures.

Combining Kafka and microservices means that you can build event-driven microservices architectures that decouple different bounded contexts. As a result, you’ll have a more scalable solution with fewer failure modes that allows different teams to evolve and change with less risk of affecting one another.

Register today to join us as we explore:

  • What microservices are and how they work
  • The pros and cons of microservices architectures
  • Why Kafka is the most popular tool for building event-driven architectures
