Workshop: Using NATS for multi cloud event streaming

November 3, 2021 17:45 - 20:00
Online - In person at: Laapersveld 27, 1213 VB, Hilversum

NATS is a lightweight, easy to deploy, high performance messaging system that builds upon cloud native infrastructure concepts. It is also open source and written in Go. Form3 has been successfully using NATS for event streaming on our multi cloud architecture, which powers payments for Financial Institutions at high volumes. This talk will share our knowledge and usage of this cool technology with the tech community.

Details

Broadly, our presentation will consist of:

  • A high-level overview of Form3’s architecture: a broad understanding of our systems will set the scene for the usage of NATS in our production systems
  • An introduction to fundamental concepts of NATS and JetStream: it is important to understand how streams, consumers and server configuration work in NATS. We will highlight some great features of NATS and compare NATS with other technologies
  • Implementation details and lessons learned: once we have a good understanding of the main features of NATS, we can investigate some implementation details of NATS in Go, as well as discussing where we see the NATS project going in the future at Form3

This talk will be useful to anyone in the audience already using or interested in learning about event streaming in Go. Join us to learn more about the power of NATS!”
