Learn cloud concepts with Whitney and her lightboard ϟ
Jun 9, 2022
Event-driven architecture is beginning to emerge as a default approach to building systems, challenging the client-server paradigm that has reigned in one form or another for forty years. As our applications become collections of services coordinating their work with one another, and user expectations move more and more towards the realm of the real time, events have taken center stage. In this conversation, we’ll discuss those motivations, the basic architectures that are emerging, and what the new frontier is in data infrastructure to make the event-first world queryable and its value easily visible to internal stakeholders and users alike.

Whitney traveled the scenic route but is chuffed to have found her way to Kubernetes and cloud technologies. Whitney began her professional career as a fine artist before owning her own photography business for over a decade. After a year-long tour playing keys in the band Mutual Benefit, Whitney went back to school in 2019 to learn full-stack web development. After graduation, Whitney was employed by IBM as a cloud developer, using none of the skills she had just learned. She developed an insatiable appetite for all things cloud, and a passion for teaching others as she acquired knowledge herself. Whitney has made many cloud-related lightboard videos that together have 400,000+ views. At VMware, you can find Whitney writing lighthearted yet informative guides, or behind the lightboard during her weekly streaming show ϟ Enlightning. Whitney’s contagious excitement drives her to collaborate and play!
