Microservices Done Right (with examples in ASP.NET Core and NServiceBus)

David Boike & Indu Alagarsamy 2-Day Workshop
Tue-Wed, Sept 11-12

Join David Boike and Indu Alagarsamy for a two-day deep dive covering architectural topics like:

  • Implementing evolving business requirements using DDD principles and event-driven architecture
  • Data ownership across the enterprise
  • How to choose NoSQL databases for your services
  • How to build a UI with bounded contexts and service boundaries in mind

You’ll also learn the nitty-gritty details of building production-ready systems including:

  • Fault tolerance – HTTP and queues
  • Reliable integration with 3rd party systems
  • Scalability, high availability & monitoring

Finally, get some hands-on experience in SOA development by building:

  • Scalable command-processing endpoints
  • Publish/subscribe event-processing interactions
  • Long-running multi-stage business processes and policies


We’ll understand service oriented architecture concepts, and DDD concepts such as bounded contexts and data ownership.

We’ll apply those concepts to build a simple, yet fully functional, order management system sample with a service-oriented architecture, using patterns such as command processing, pub/sub, and long-running sagas.
