Yves Lorphelin and Alexey Zimarev’s talks 

Don't miss Yves Lorphelin (Head of Developer Advocacy) and Alexey Zimarev’s (Interim Head of Product) talk at DDDEU;

Refactoring to a really small but useful model island inside a sea of Legacy code

A few years ago the system I was working on involved a set of rules that allows for job applicants taking part of selection tests to make use of exemptions or (unfortunately) blocking them from taking further tests . This part of the system began as a set of queries against the main database, with no explicit domain knowledge in the code. As time passed.... this code proved difficult to reason about as requirements changed, and new reasons to give exemptions or block applications were introduced. In the end, it was refactored as a combination of strategy & composite pattern. The gain there was of course being able to add/remove new strategies more easily. The main point I got out of that refactoring though was we got explicit domain terminology, clear rules, and an easy way to reason about the specifics of this island of the better model in the code

Wednesday 7 from 11:00 until 11:50 in Blue Room

Event Sourcing in a Serverless World

Have you been using event sourcing to build robust and scalable systems, but are now curious about how it fits with Serverless architecture? As someone who's deeply immersed in the world of Event Sourcing, I too was curious about this intersection. I've spent a lot of time exploring how Event Sourcing can be implemented in a Serverless environment, and have discovered some unique challenges and opportunities. In this talk, I'll take you on a journey through my findings, starting with an overview of Serverless architecture and the benefits it brings. But as we dive deeper, we'll explore the thorny issue of implementing real-time subscriptions in a Serverless environment and the various approaches and trade-offs involved. Along the way, I'll share some of my own experiences and provide concrete examples of how to solve some of the toughest problems. Whether you're a seasoned Event Sourcing expert or new to the game, this talk is guaranteed to give you a fresh perspective on how Event Sourcing can be leveraged in a Serverless world. Join me and let's explore this exciting intersection together!

Wednesday 7 from 11:00 until 11:50 in Red Room
