Who is this presentation for?

  • Developers and businesspeople




More and more, Allen Holub has come to see event storming as a critically important tool in the architect’s palate. It’s a way to simultaneously collaborate with businesspeople to understand the problems that the business has to solve and to develop an architecture for the solution. Join in to learn how event storming works and how to apply it.

You’ll take an in-depth look at event storming and the underlying concepts (from domain-driven design) as you participate in an extensive hands-on demo. Along the way, you’ll discover the entities, bounded contexts, and essential events for an effective choreographed microservice (or reactive) architecture.
