Today on the podcast, Bernd Rucker of Camunda talks about event sourcing. In particular, Wes and Bernd discuss thoughts around scalability, events, commands, consensus, and the orchestration engines Camunda implemented. This podcast is a primer on considerations between an RDBMS and event-driven systems. Why listen to this podcast: - An event-driven system is a more modern approach to building highly scalable systems. - An RDBMS system can limit throughput in scalability. Camunda was able to achieve higher levels of scale by implementing an event-driven system. - Command and events are often confused. Commands are actions that request something to happen. Events describe something that happened. Confusing the two causes confusion in application development of event-driven systems.
