Event Log Architectures: When quality matters (Talk, EventSourcing 2020)
by Martin Thompson

Many terms get thrown around when it comes to designing around a central log. You'll most likely will have heard of event sourcing, command sourcing, CQRS, event driven, etc. What about replicated state machines?

This talk will explore architectures which have emerged based on event logs, what they are useful for, and consequences of different approaches. The focus will be on the quality attributes such as fault tolerance, scalability, operations, integration, and development concerns.
