Learning Amazon EventBridge

Hi! I'm David Boyne.

In 2019 Amazon EventBridge was released and I have spent the past few years learning and using Amazon EventBridge to build Event-Driven Architectures within AWS.

When I was learning Amazon EventBridge, I wanted a resource that could fast track my learning, give me real examples and help me understand Event Architectures within AWS but nothing was there...

I have spent many hours reading documentation, watching talks and learning best practices for Amazon EventBridge and wanted to offer the community a resource that I wish I had at the start.

That's why I'm writing this book.

In this book, I will take you on a journey creating Event-Driven architectures within AWS using Amazon EventBridge as the provider. We'll cover everything from setting up the service, exploring best practices and diving deeper into Amazon EventBridge.

So if you're looking to learn more about Amazon EventBridge, then look no further. You're in the right place.

What's Inside

It covers topics like:

  • Understanding Orchestration vs Choreography within AWS
  • Understanding Idempotency and why it's important
  • Exploring Event First Thinking when designing your events
  • How can EventStorming or Event Modeling help you design your events
  • Learning the Fundamentals of EventBridge
  • Event payload patterns and recommendations
  • Exploring Event and Schema documentation practices
  • Setting up and understanding Rules, Filters and Targets
  • Transforming event payloads for downstream services
  • Understanding event failures and how to replay and archive your events
  • Validating event payloads and versions in consumers
  • Producing and consuming events from external sources (outside AWS)
  • Exploring Authentication for event producers and consumers
  • Learn how to observe and debug your events
  • Gain confidence with your architecture with integration testing
  • And much more...
