Event-driven architecture: A Red Hat thought leadership event

Aired on June 22, 2021Now available on-demand

An event-driven architecture (EDA) can help organizations achieve a flexible system that can adapt to changes and make real-time decisions. Real-time situational awareness means that business decisions, whether manual or automated, can be made using all of the available data that reflects the current state of your systems.

Organizations can add event-driven architectures and applications to improve the scalability and responsiveness of applications. This will allow access to the data and context needed for better business decisions.

Topics to be discussed:

  • Going from Java™ Message Service (JMS) to EDA, what middleware adventures have taught us.
  • Streaming apps that spark joy with Kafka.
  • Serverless functions development with Cloud Events and Quarkus.
  • Event-driven APIs.
  • Application modernization patterns with Apache Kafka, Debezium, and Kubernetes.

Who should attend:

  • Chief Architects
  • Data Scientists
  • Developers
  • IT Managers
  • Tech Leads
  • Testers
  • Others in your organization who are involved in event-driven architecture assignments.​

Join our event virtually, and we’ll share the latest tools and best practices needed for success. Register today.

12:00 p.m. - 12:15 p.m. Welcome and opening remarks, Red Hat as a thought leader in event-driven architecture, Rob Sedor
12:15 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Application modernization patterns with Apache Kafka, Debezium and Kubernetes, Bilgin Ibryam
Creating modern distributed applications is not an easy task: such systems have to follow the 12-factor app principles and be event-driven. In this session we will take you on a journey exploring how to start from a monolithic application and gradually transition to a modern distributed, scalable application.
1:00 p.m. - 1:15 p.m. BREAK
1:15 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. Streaming Apps That Spark Joy With Kafka, Edson Yanaga
Join us for this session where we'll go through a streaming journey: learning the basics and concepts of Kafka and how you can develop, deploy and execute streaming applications successfully in a highly productive way by leveraging superpowers like Kafka, Quarkus, Reactive Streams and more.
2:00 p.m. - 2:45 p.m. Serverless Functions Development with CloudEvents and Quarkus, Daniel Oh
Due to the rise of serverless computing popularity, developers also need to implement an event-driven architecture in terms of decoupling event relationships between producers and consumers. In this session, we'll walk you through how efficiently Quarkus enables Java developers to scaffold serverless functions projects then bind the functions with CloudEvents in a Kubernetes/OpenShift cluster in 5 minutes.
2:45 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. BREAK
3:00 p.m. - 3:45 p.m. Event-driven APIs, Hugo Guerrero
With Apache Kafka’s rise for event-driven architectures, developers require a specification to design effective event-driven APIs. During this session, we will be covering various API related topics.
3:45 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. Going from Java Message Service (JMS) to EDA, what middleware adventures have taught us, Markus Eisele
Traditional middleware has come a long way from centralized systems to web services, complex event processing and SOA. This talk will take you on a modernization adventure and will help you understand the differences and evolutions of technology.
4:30 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. Event wrap-up, final thoughts and Q&A, Rob Sedor
