So, you’re looking to get started with application development based upon event-driven microservices. With businesses today posing an ever-increasing demand for faster speeds of innovation with limited costs and complexity, many teams have decided the same. The popularity of modern architectures based upon event-driven microservices comes from an industry move toward decoupling services into small, reusable components in order to simplify development and management of their data systems. Rather than being tangled within a monolith of code, different functions within an application can operate independently and asynchronously which allows for reduced complexity, reduced risk, and a faster means to both launch and scale new apps.
Built around Apache Kafka, Confluent provides a fully managed, cloud-native platform for data in motion to easily build and manage communications between microservices.
In this short, 20-minute session you’ll gain everything you need to get started with development of your first app based upon event-driven microservices:
