Topic: Command Query Responsibility Segregation and Event Sourcing
Command Query Responsibility Segregation (CQRS) and Event Sourcing are two distributed architecture patterns that when combined produce a very compelling architecture for a lot of problems that we as software developers face on a regular basis. Why do we insist on using the same data model to service both the transactional portion of our software and the queries/read portion? We typically only store the current state of our entities, what happens when the business wants to do some analysis on *why* the data is what it is? The CQRS and Event Sourcing patterns attempt to address these concerns and provide a number of other highly valuable benefits, both technical benefits, but more importantly business benefits that translate directly into business value for your organization. This session will begin by doing a brief review of common distributed architecture patterns you’re all probably familiar with even if you don’t know them by name, then we will take a look at the CQRS and Event Sourcing style of architecture and how it compares to the traditional distributed architecture patterns.
