Hybrid event

Event-driven architecture

April 19, 20229:00 AM - 4:30 PM ETVirtual or in-person in New York City

An event-driven architecture (EDA) has emerged as a way to help organizations liberate their data and flexibly adapt to changes and make real-time decisions. Event-driven architecture can help provide loose coupling for microservices, real-time situational awareness to make business decisions, automate infrastructure, modernize existing application architectures and provide the glue for data mesh and data pipeline designs.

Organizations require this type of flexibility to bring solutions to market and stay competitive.  This event will explore both what can be done and how it can be done.


  • Design tips for EDA developers
  • Techniques such as DDD (Domain Driven Design), event storming and modeling EDA applications
  • Serverless and eventing
  • Integrating with distributed data and systems
  • Real stories about using eventing and streaming to solve business problems


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

All attendees at in-person Red Hat® events must be masked, except when eating/drinking. All attendees must be fully vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus.

*Note: In-person registration will close 30 minutes prior to the event on April 19, 2022.

Registration & breakfast 8:30 AM - 9:30 AM ET 
Welcome and opening remarks, Red Hat as a thought leader in event-driven architecture
Speaker:  Rob Sedor, Chief Architect for Application Development, Red Hat
9:30 AM - 9:40 AM ET 
10 Design Tips for EDA Developers
Speaker: Jim Tyrrell, Chief Application Services Architect, NA Public Sector, Red Hat
This talk will split its time between general tips about how to get the most out of your EDA systems in the context of human factors and Design, but will also explore the nuts and bolts of using Java™ and Quarkus to take your EDA systems to the next level. This talk will give you tools to quickly create scalable EDA systems with Quarkus and Java, that meet the needs of the humans developing, deploying, using, and monitoring these systems.
9:40 AM - 10:20 AM ET 
Break 10:20 AM - 10:30 AM ET
Domain Driven Design, Event Storming and Event Driven Applications
Speaker: Jeremy Davis, Chief Architect, Red Hat
Domain Driven Design aligns software with business domains through collaboration with domain experts.  Event Storming identifies the “events” that are important to a business domain through collaborative exploration with domain experts.

Combining these approaches both simplifies building event driven applications and provides an excellent foundation for development.  In this presentation we will use Domain Driven Design principles and Event Storming techniques to build an event driven microservices application and an event driven monolithic application.

10:30 AM - 11:20 AM ET
Break 11:20 AM - 11:30 AM ET
Event-driven autoscaling through KEDA and Knative Integration
Speaker: Daniel Oh, Sr. principal technical marketing manager, Red Hat
This talk will teach you how to redesign an event-driven autoscaling architecture by utilizing Knative and KEDA infrastructure. You will also learn how to deploy serverless applications (Quarkus) by Knative service then KEDA will enable you to autoscale Knative Eventing components (KafkaSource) through events consumption over standard resources (CPU, Memory).
11:30 AM - 12:20 PM ET
Lunch 12:20 PM - 1:15 PM ET 
Integrating Distributed Data with CQRS and Event Sourcing
Speaker: Edson Yanaga, Director of Developer Experience, Red Hat
Distributing and integrating your data is one of the most significant challenges in distributed architectures such as Microservices. We can't say that there's an easy solution for this, but we can make it simpler: meet CQRS and Event Sourcing.

Join us in this session to watch a live coding demo of distributed data integration. We can start from centralized data stores such as legacy databases and move the data to remote CQRS stores in an efficient and (why not) simple way using technologies like Quarkus, Apache Kafka, Reactive Messaging, and more!

1:15 PM - 2:05 PM ET
Break 2:05 PM - 2:15 PM ET
Trade Capture: A Story of Mapping and Loss
Speaker: Stephen Nimmo, Senior Specialist Solution Architect, Red Hat
In the demo, we will show the real-world scenario for processing trade data from a cryptocurrency exchange. It includes end-to-end capabilities like connecting to, processing, and managing the connection with the exchange as well as the patterns associated with processing the data accurately and quickly. To showcase the real-world business value, demo microservices will be connected to a sandbox trading environment at the Gemini cryptocurrency exchange.
2:15 PM - 3:05 PM ET 
Event wrap-up and cocktail reception

Jim Tyrell
Chief Application Services Architect, NA Public Sector, Red Hat
Jim Tyrrell is a 26 year Java veteran, who has spent more than a decade thinking about how Design intersects with Software Development.  Jim earned a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.  To further his skills in Design he earned a Master’s of Design Methods Degree at the Illinois Institute of Technology - Institute of Design.  (ID).  ID is the only Design school in the Western Hemisphere with a Master’s or higher curriculum, i.e. no undergraduate classes or degrees, and 1 of only 2 in the world.  This program reinforced and formalized many of the human-centered needs organically developed via 2+ decades of software delivery and development.   In addition to the human-centered needs, Jim was also exposed to classes in Leadership, Innovation, Human Behavioral Economics, Captology, Experience, and Service System Design.  Jim brings decades of experience, education, and execution to the juxtaposition of design and software development.
