497K views and counting: My DockerCon 2016 talk - Microservices + Events + Docker = A Perfect Trio

Back in 2016, I gave a talk at DockerCon: Microservices + Events + Docker = A Perfect Trio. To my surprise the video has been viewed 497K times!

My thinking has evolved since I gave that presentation. Especially when it comes to the role of event sourcing and events:

  • Event sourcing is simply one way of generating events
  • What was referred to as event-driven architecture is what I would now call choreography-based sagas (as opposed to orchestration-based sagas)
  • Events are simply one form of asynchronous messaging, which is essential for ensuring that services are loosely coupled

Also, the Docker ecosystem has evolved considerably over the past 4 years. And, of course, serverless has become much more important.

Nevertheless, I hope you find the talk interesting. Here are the slides and the video.
