Event streams as source of truth for applications have risen in popularity. Thoughtworks lists it in the assess phase of their technology radar (Nov 17). At DriveTribe we’re slightly ahead of the curve as we’ve been using this technique in production with Flink since the launch of our platform in Nov 2016. In this talk we discuss how we can use this technique with some functional programming and Flink to successfully design distributed and highly scalable applications and data platforms.
