It Ain’t Much, but It’s Honest Work. Thank You!
Let’s celebrate our 100th follower and discuss the way forward
Event-driven applications are getting increasingly popular these days compared to their request-reply counterpart. When you want to build asynchronous, loosely coupled, highly scalable, and resilient applications, the Event-driven Architecture (EDA) is the best option to consider.
But designing, building, and managing event-driven applications are somewhat difficult as there are many principles, frameworks, and technologies to choose from. Today, we can see tons of learning materials around the Internet related to various event-driven technologies and how to get things done with them.
Whether you are a novice or an expert in the EDA space, it is always better to have a structured learning path towards building event-driven applications. A path full of real-world examples, guiding principles, and takeaways to apply to your next EDA project.
Having that in mind, I started this Medium publication last December to share my knowledge and experience around designing, building, and managing event-driven applications at scale. Today, I’m happy to announce that we have passed the 100th follower mark in this publication.
I know it is a silly thing to celebrate. But having an active interest in the content produced here encourages me to do more. We are here for the long run — to make building EDA better for the future.
So, allow me to celebrate this quick win and present you with the plan for the rest of the year.
1. Launching ‘This Week in EdU’
This is a weekly review of curated content related to EDA. Curated articles, tutorials, and YouTube videos will be compiled into a weekly digest and published every Sunday.
2. Introducing new content formats
Besides regular features and tutorials, we are planning to bring in visual storytelling techniques such as sketch notes and comics to discuss complex problems in EDA.
3. Launching ‘EdU Guides’
EdU Guides is a collection of real-world use cases designed according to the principles of EDA. Each use case will have a dedicated source code repo, a detailed step-by-step tutorial, and an optional live coding session. We’ll keep you posted on this soon.
4. Accepting external content contributions
Obviously, ten heads are better than one. The more diversified content we get from the community, the better the value we create here.
If you have any exciting content related to EDA which you would like to publish at EdU, let us know.
We deviated from the usual content this week to retrospect the past and plan for a much better future.
Thanks for being with us so far.
Thanks for the claps and comments. That means a lot.
Keep reading, building, and sharing!
