Loosely or Lousy Coupled?
Online GOTO Night

GOTO Nights are a series of community meetups that cover a variety of tech topics by our industry's top creators, builders and thought leaders.

Each event includes an educational and inspirational talk paired with a Q&A and a chance for attendees to network with like-minded developers in a casual environment.

Loosely or Lousy Coupled?

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.

About the event

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.
