Online Meetup with Bernd Rücker

Join Us

As part of a collaborative initiative, Trifork and GOTO have organised a series of events with GOTO experts and Trifork Software Engineers & Architects.

Join us in this online Meetup with Trifork Full Stack Developer, Taraasha Chopra, hosting GOTO expert, Bernd Rücker. During this one hour session, Bernd will present on the topic of Communication Patterns in Microservices Architectures and their effect on the productivity of your team. The presentation will be followed by an Q&A session and the opportunity to network with other like-minded attendees.

About the event

In a microservices architecture, services shall be as loosely coupled as possible. Still, they need to communicate with each other in order to fulfil business requirements. Now there are so many questions around this communication:

  • What are the general possibilities to communicate? For example synchronous, asynchronous, or event-driven communication.
  • What are the tradeoffs and which communication style should you prefer?
  • What is the influence on the coupling of your services? For example, asynchronous communication reduces temporal coupling between services.
  • What do I have to consider when selecting a certain communication style? For example, you need to apply certain resilience patterns if you want to use synchronous communication.

Taraasha Chopra

Trifork, Full Stack Developer

 A decade of training and practicing as a psychologist, the question ‘How does that make you feel’ keeps coming back to her even in her journey as a Software Developer. Having experience both in and out of IT, Taraasha looks at software as a way of enriching and improving people’s lives. Currently working towards digitizing the educational sector, Taraasha has gained experience in both frontend and backend technologies at Trifork. Although she prefers working on frontend and user experience, she is still finding her niche in the big world of software development. Taraasha hopes her journey could help inspire more people, especially women to follow their passions in Tech.
