Lessons learned implementing a cloud-native architecture in .NET Core

Some time ago I was hired as the software-architect for a development team of a financial institution. This team had the assignment to build a new cloud-native and event-driven system based on a Microservices architecture. .NET Core was selected as the primary development stack and this turned out to be a great choice. The system is running in production today and fulfills all the functional and non-functional requirements that were defined for the system.

The session will give an insight into the way .NET Core was used for implementing DDD, the CQRS pattern and event-sourcing for storing state. It will cover the rationale behind the choices made and the lessons learned while designing and building this system. The session will cover both concepts as well as code.
