Cloud tales: real world CQRS/Event Sourcing

CQRS and Event Sourcing (or, more in general, applications using events as their basic information block) are by no means new kids on the block, yet a lot can be told about how to use cloud platforms to unleash their power without having costs soaring.
The ingredients list is quite simple: an event store, an event dispatcher, read model(s) and computing options to run back-end services. Picking up technologies in a cost savvy way, though, isn’t trivial due to the amount of viable options: should we go PaaS (e.g.: CosmosDB/DynamoDB, AppService, ASB/SQS) or IaaS? CosmosDB/DynamoDB or Mongo? Where do containers fit in this context?
Eager to know our recipe (and look at real code)? Don’t miss this talk then.

CTO @ Managed Designs, Microsoft Regional Director, Chuck addict, Depeche Mode überfan

I am an entrepreneur and consultant in the Software Architecture field from Milan, Italy, serving as the CTO of Managed Designs while still eager to write code in real projects to get feedback about my architectural decisions.

I am a Microsoft Regional Director for Italy, providing strategic feedback to Microsoft's senior leadership team.

As a trainer and speaker, I had several speaking engagements for courses and conferences across Europe such as TechEd Europe, Ignite Dev Tour and Codemotion.

In 2001 I co-founded UGIdotNET, the first Italian .NET User Group, of which I am the leader; due to my contributions to the .NET developer community, I have been awarded by Microsoft as a Most Valuable Professional since 2003.
