This episode with Sam Dengler was fantastic and full of good discussions.
Event Driven Architecture is a paradigm which has existed for quite some time.
At 38:50, Rahul asks a question, “Where is the line between synchronously adding to a queue, and thinking of the overall process as asynchronous?” Sam refers to a great Twitter thread by @SamNewman, here: https://twitter.com/samnewman/status/1414894650125586434 . Gregor Hohpe replies “I’ve been waiting 16 years to answer this”. See the thread for more information.
Sam also mentions a book, The Power of Now: How Winning Companies Sense and Respond to Change Using Real-Time Technology. This book, written by the founder of TIBCO Software Inc, describes how important it is for companies to be able to process events, make decisions, and respond in real time. Event Driven Architecture enables this.
Finally, we ask Sam what resources are available for people to learn more about serverless. His response was ServerlessLand.com. This site brings together all the latest blogs, videos, and training for AWS Serverless. Learn to use and build apps that scale automatically on low-cost, fully-managed serverless architecture.
