Friday 9 from 14:30 until 15:20 in Room 6+7

Shaking up the norms of sponsored talks, we invite you to join us for an unconventional and dynamic discussion about Event Sourcing and the role of EventStoreDB. In the first 15 minutes, we'll revisit the foundation of Event Sourcing, debunking common misconceptions, presenting its potential advantages, and demonstrating a live example. From there, we leap into a lively group conversation – a platform where we want your voice to be heard. We're eager to listen to your experiences, your doubts, and your aspirations related to Event Sourcing. Is Event Sourcing bringing value to your project? Have you implemented a system using Event Sourcing and, if so, what have been the outcomes? If you've been hesitating to use it, what obstacles are in your way? This interactive dialogue aims to delve into these topics and more, shedding light on the practical realities, potential hurdles, and opportunities presented by Event Sourcing. One of our favorite parts of being a regular sponsor at DDD Europe has been the enriching ad-hoc conversations at our booth. This year, we want to expand on that by transforming those insightful one-on-ones into a comprehensive group discussion, fostering a vibrant community where we can share ideas, bust myths, and narrate stories. Regardless of whether you're a seasoned developer, an architect, or a novice curious about Event Sourcing, we invite you to bring your experiences and perspectives to the table. Through this shared dialogue, we hope to explore the landscape of Event Sourcing and its influence on modern software architecture together. Join us in this exciting journey through Event Sourcing at DDD Europe, where we will learn, debate, and grow as a community. Be prepared to challenge the status quo and engage in an interactive experience that promises to be anything but ordinary.
