Principles for Success in Event Driven and Event Sourced Systems

Event Sourcing has been growing in popularity for the last decade as an alternative to Create Read Update Delete (CRUD) to help wrangle complexity in challenging domains. Yet we occasionally hear stories of the inverse happening. Where complexity is increased, development speed and confidence drops, and deadlines are missed. Why is this? More often than not it's because fundamental principles and warning signs are ignored or are simply just not known to the team. This talk will briefly recap these paradigms and then dive into what ensures success for systems that strive for resiliency, traceability, idempotency, and tend to be data-intensive.

Effective Data Visualization

We spend much of our time collecting and analyzing data. That data is only useful if it can be displayed in a meaningful, understandable way. Yale professor Edward Tufte presented many ideas on how to effectively present data to an audience or end user. In this session, I will explain some of Tufte's most important guidelines about data visualization and how you can apply those guidelines to your own data. You will learn what to include, what to remove, and what to avoid in your charts, graphs, maps and other images that represent data.
