Listen to Tim Berglund, Gwen Shapira, and guests unpack a variety of topics surrounding Apache Kafka®, Confluent, real-time data streaming, and the cloud.
Nationwide Building Society, a financial institution in the United Kingdom with 137 years of history and over 18,000 employees, relies on Apache Kafka for their event streaming needs. But how did this come to be? In this episode, Tim Berglund talks with Rob Jackson (Principal Architect, Nationwide) about their Kafka adoption journey as they celebrate two years in production.
Chris Richardson, creator of the original Cloud Foundry, maintainer of Microservices.io, and author of “Microservices Patterns: With Examples in Java,” discovered cloud computing in 2006 during a Google talk about APIs for provisioning. Chris explains what choreographed sagas are, reasons to leverage them, and how to measure their efficacy.
Author Sam Newman catches up with Tim Berglund in the virtual studio on what microservices are, how they work, the drawbacks of microservices, what splitting the monolith looks like, and patterns to look for. The pair talk through Sam's book “Monolith to Microservices” chapter by chapter, looking at key components of microservices in more detail.
In this podcast, Ben Stopford explores the event-driven paradigm and how it relates to the microservice architectures we build today. Ben dives deep into coupling, evolution and challenges of our increasingly data-oriented culture.
