Microservice Integration: Events, Sagas and Schemas

A one-day masterclass which focuses on microservice integration patterns

You’ve probably seen plenty of “boxes and arrows” diagrams when looking at microservice architectures, but what’s behind those lines? In this full-day course you'll explore the nature of service-to-service calls.

The array of technology choices in this space is vast, so one of the first things Sam will share will be a model for thinking of service-to-sevice collaboration. From there you’ll explore some of the technology choices that fit into this model, including looking at newer interaction models enabled by technology Kafka and service meshes. Finally, you’ll learn how to implement business processes through Sagas — and how to manage all those individual service calls and make them part of something more.

Expect discussion about schemas, serialization formats, messaging patterns and maybe even some BPM…

Key Topics

  • The fundamental differences between in-process and cross-service calls
  • A model for picking different service integration technologies
  • Key patterns for sagas and messaging
  • Emerging technology like service meshes and kafka streaming

Course Requirements

A basic understanding of microservices is useful, but not essential. This class is not a coding workshop, but will be interactive, making use of group exercises to help participants explore the topics.

You can happily attend both of Sam Newmans Masterclasses. There won’t be more than 15 minutes of overlap between the two!
