Event-Driven Architecture (EDA) vs Request/Response (RR)

Event-Driven Architecture (EDA) vs Request/Response (RR)

In this video, Adam Bellemare compares and contrasts Event-Driven and Request-Driven Architectures to give you a better idea of the tradeoffs and benefits involved with each.

Many developers start in the synchronous request-response (RR) world, using REST and RPC to build inter-service communications. But tight service-to-service coupling, scalability, fan-out sensitivity, and data access issues can still remain.

In contrast, Event-Driven Architectures (EDA) provide a powerful way to decouple services in both time and space, letting you subscribe and react to the events that matter most for your line of business.
