Recording of Jonathan Oliver on Event Sourcing and EventStore @ E-VAN 25 October 2011

Jonathan Oliver did a tremendous presentation yesterday on Event Sourcing and the open-source EventStore project. Jonathan is clearly very passionate about this topic as he shared some great real-world knowledge and insights. He started off by telling about his own CQRS journey, jumping over to event sourcing and describing the EventStore model, dispatchers, serialization, etc. … Jonathan also showed two particular implementations, one for SQL Server and another for RavenDB.

As always, the recording is now available on Vimeo:

Because we were close to time, Jonathan wasn’t able to answer all questions. There’s this thread on the DDD/CQRS group or you can just send Jonathan an e-mail directly.

The original file that we used for uploading can also be downloaded from Vimeo as well. So you just have to log on (or register if you don’t have an account) and download the original recording in the right down corner. The quality of the original recording is slightly better.

We’re still very interested in hearing your thoughts and opinions. Please let us know what you think or do suggest a topic that you’re interested in.

Details of the next E-VAN presentation will be posted soon.

Jonathan Oliver on Event Sourcing and EventStore on 25 October 2011

We’re very proud to announce that Jonathan Oliver agreed to talk about his open-source EventStore project. In previous sessions, Greg Young and Mark Nijhof already talked about event-sourcing. Jonathan is going to dedicate this whole session on this topic, showing us several implementations for different kinds of databases.

For those of you who don’t know Jonathan, he’s the founder of SmartyStreets, a company that does web-based address verification and address validation. Most of their code is open source, including the EventStore project. Jonathan is also the founder and co-host of the Distributed Podcast, a great podcast about CQRS, DDD, Cloud Computing and much more.
