Benefits of migrating to event-driven architecture

Two common options when building applications are request-response and event-driven architecture. In request-response architecture, an application’s components communicate via API calls. The client sends a request and expects a response before performing the next task. In event-driven architecture, the client generates an event and can immediately move on to its next task. Different parts of […]

Event-driven architecture, at its core, is driven by producers creating events and subscribers being made aware of those events and acting upon them. An event is a data representation of something that happened elsewhere in the application or from an outside producer. When building event-driven applications, it is critical to determine what events exist in […]
