Getting Hands On with CQRS and Event Sourcing (Ep. 41)

September 5, 2017 Jeff Kelly

In this week's episode, Jeff and Dormain are joined by Pivotal Senior Solutions Architect Ben Wilcock for a deep dive into building microservices applications using the command query responsibility segregation, or CQRS, architectural pattern and event sourcing. Despite what you may have heard, CQRS really isn't that much more complex than other approaches, such as CRUD, and provides significantly more flexibility and other benefits, Ben says. "When you look at the number of components involved and what feature benefits you get from those components, CQRS punches above its weight." Ben also shares his feelings about CI/CD tooling (hint: He's not a huge fan of Jenkins!)
