Join us for the online meetup "Loosely or Lousy Coupled? Understanding Communication Patterns in Microservices Architectures" with Bernd Ruecker. This GOTO night is focused on architectural implications and the effect on the productivity of your teams.

Venue/Host: Zoom
Costs: Free of charge
Speaker: Bernd Ruecker


In a microservices architecture, services shall be as loosely coupled as possible. Still, they need to communicate with each other in order to fulfill business requirements.

Now there are so many questions around this communication:

- What are the general possibilities to communicate? For example synchronous, asynchronous, or event-driven communication.
- What are the tradeoffs and which communication style should you prefer?
- What is the influence on the coupling of your services? For example, asynchronous communication reduces temporal coupling between services.
- What do I have to consider when selecting a certain communication style? For example, you need to apply certain resilience patterns if you want to use synchronous communication.

This GOTO Night will help you answer these questions for your project. You will better understand not only the architectural implications but also the effect on the productivity of your teams.

Throughout his 15+ years in software development, he has helped automating highly scalable core workflows at global companies including T-Mobile, Lufthansa and Zalando. He has contributed to various open source workflow engines. He is co-founder and chief technologist of Camunda, an open source software company reinventing workflow automation. As well he co-authored "Real-Life BPMN," a popular book about workflow modeling and automation, now in its fifth edition and available in English, German and Spanish.

He regularly speaks at conferences and writes for various magazines. Currently he focuses on new workflow automation paradigms that fit into modern architectures around distributed systems, microservices, domain-driven design, event-driven architecture and reactive systems.
