  • Engineers, architects, business analysts, and product owners




More and more, event storming is a critically important tool in the architect’s palate. It’s essential for all reactive, event-based systems, including microservices. With event storming, you simultaneously collaborate with businesspeople to understand the problems that the business has to solve and develop an architecture for the solution. Along the way, you discover the events, entities, aggregates, and bounded contexts that are essential for an effective choreographed microservice (or reactive) architecture.

Allen Holub gives you an in-depth look at event storming and the underlying concepts (from domain-driven design (DDD)), including an extensive hands-on demo of the process. You’ll come away with a solid understanding of how event storming works and how to apply it.

Prerequisite knowledge

  • A basic knowledge of microservice or reactive systems (e.g., Amazon Lambda)

What you'll learn

  • Learn how to use event storming to create reactive systems such as microservices
