Event Sourcery:
In this talk I’ll take you upon a journey through the wondrous world of event sourcing. As an event sorcerers apprentice, I’ll present to you some of the things that I’ve learned during my own adventures of the past year.

You’ll see how to build an Aggregate Root that writes events, a projector that stores a read model in the database and a process manager that listens to events and creates new ones!

About Johnny:
Ever since I was a little boy, I dreamed about becoming a professional football player. As it turned out I wasn’t fit for such a job… simply because I’m a terrible football player.

It turned out that people were willing to pay me for building websites and PHP applications. Therefore I’m doing my best, building up a career as a PHP developer. Currently I work on some of the biggest real estate websites of the Netherlands.

Serverless does not mean there are no servers; those are only just hidden from you. Scale with ease without provisioning server and without paying for idle…is this for real? Yes it is! After this talk you will understand why serverless architecture is great and you will be excited to create your own serverless solutions to make your life easier. And last but not least…it’s lot’s of fun!

About Robert:
Robert Slootjes, Technical Director at MediaMonks HQ specialized in backend development. Has spoken at many events in the last years and always excited to share knowledge with other developers.
