Streaming Events? You Should Be Storing Them

Event-driven architecture has been on many developers' minds for some time. Event streaming has increased in popularity, and whilst streaming has fantastic advantages, if you are not storing events at the source of the application, you are missing out on so many opportunities. Not just for your developer teams but also the wider business. In this talk Yves and Matt discuss Event Sourcing and how a new category of database has evolved from this community. A database that is built for storing events with a data model behind it that creates a richer data story. Sharing use cases, why you should care about data at origin, and how this database is perfect for building modern software.
