How do you communicate about the Event assets in your organisation?  Where do you keep what Events there are?  Authors and users of RESTful APIs are used to a rich suite of tools that gather, document, manage, monitor and govern their APIs so that teams can collaborate on their API assets, re-using where possible.  In this session we will show how this can be done for Events, showing how they can be designed, catalogued and re-used; and how, with the help of code generation using AyncAPI, developers can abstract the Event interface to concentrate on consuming the Event specification and acting upon it.
