Event Sourcing for Everyone - Jenna Blumenthal

In applications that persist data, getting the current state of the system is trivial. But often the question is not only where are we now, but how did we get here? Event sourcing is a pattern that stores changes to state as a sequence of events. The events encapsulate all the information needed for a record to change from one state to another, and the current state can be completely destroyed and rebuilt by replaying these events.

Sounds great, right? But how do we take a system that is not designed using event sourcing, and start to apply some of these patterns? I’ll give an overview of the architecture’s key components and share some examples of how to adopt event sourcing into an existing application.
