Drinking from the Stream: How to Use Messaging Platforms for Scalability & Performance

Track: Cloud Infrastructure (microservices and serverless)
Abstract

Most mission-critical systems have distributed elements or are entirely distributed, resulting in a number of challenges: performance, scalability, reliability, resilience…the eight fallacies of distributed computing are alive and well!

Messaging platforms are often used to solve these problems and increase the “ilities”, but they don’t come without a few complexities of their own. Come to this session to learn how to leverage open source solutions like Spring Cloud Stream, RabbitMQ, & Apache Kafka to maximize your distributed systems’ capabilities while minimizing complexity. All examples will be coded live & in real-time!
