I made everything loosely coupled. Does my app fall apart?
Integrating systems provides many benefits, from seamless user experiences, consolidated data for better insights, or interacting with partner ecosystems. And the modern cloud applications that we are building are fine-grained and thus inherently interconnected. Despite having connected systems for decades, some of the fundamental concepts of partial failure, eventual consistency, or idempotency still challenge many developers. This session tackles the nuances of integrated systems, such as messages vs. events, thinking in integration patterns, whether loose coupling is always better, and how cloud automation can change the way you think about integration.
