Talk - Designing a mission critical event system

Event-driven architectures come in many shapes and sizes. Frank designed the event system for a 5x-unicorn FinTech. The design needed to allow for difficult requirements such as providing exactly-once event processing semantics. In this talk we’ll go over the practical things that made it a success and see how the event system was made.


Frank de Jonge is a software engineer with a passion for distributed message-driven systems. During the day he is supporting teams at Personio. At night, he's maintaining his open source projects; Flysystem and EventSauce. Frank uses a principled approach to solving problems, which is something he likes to share with others.
