Event-driven Microservices with Micronaut and Apache Kafka

Event-driven architectures look great on paper (or a whiteboard), but it's easy to run into snags when trying to implement them. In this talk, we'll see how tools from the Apache Kafka ecosystem can make this task easier and a lot more fun!

In this session, with Apache Kafka as the backbone, we'll use Micronaut to implement an event-driven architecture that is loosely coupled and easily extensible. Then we'll extend it with a Kafka Streams application without affecting any of the existing applications.

The Taming of the API

Tranio tells Lucentio that, “No profit grows where is no pleasure ta’en: In brief, sir, study what you most affect.” While Tranio’s point was to get Lucentio to loosen up for him to “live a little,” this is still a valuable lesson to developers. Your team has worked hard to build the functionality that provides all of your customers’ needs, but how easily have you made it for them to access that? Sometimes building the API is the easy part; making them usable is the hard part. But by adding an API gateway, we can make it easier for customers to access functionality and data provided by your application.

In this presentation, we will look at API gateways in general and how to use them to make your APIs usable. We’ll then go into examples using Azure’s API Management service, which allows you to streamline work in Azure and across hybrid and multi-cloud environments to provide your customers with a single place to work with your APIs.
