Talk 2: Event-driven Microservices using Apache Kafka
Andrew Schofield – Chief Architect, Event Streams at IBM

Microservices usually communicate synchronously, often using REST APIs. There is an alternative way using events. By adopting an event-based approach for intercommunication between microservices, the microservices applications are naturally responsive (event-driven). This approach enhances the loose coupling nature of microservices because it decouples producers and consumers.
