Messaging and Streaming

Apache Kafka has been a critical piece in most of the modern Event-driven stacks. If you are new to Kafka and interested in covering some ground in a short time, Gunnar Morling and Hans-Peter Grahsl

Serverless functions and event-driven workflows

How to download data with AWS Step Functions?

In this article, Michael Bahr discusses the Step Functions Downloader Pattern, a serverless approach to retrieving and storing data from 3rd party APIs with as little custom code (read: Lambda functions) as possible.

Asynchronous processing with Cloud Run and Pub/Sub

This article describes a solution for asynchronous processing where an API running on Cloud Run will send events to Pub/Sub. These events will then be sent back to the API through a Pub/Sub push subscription.

AsyncAPI joins the Linux Foundation

Last but not least, this week has been exciting for the AsyncAPI specification team since they announced joining the Linux Foundation.

Congratulations, team! you made it. More exciting stuff to come in soon.
