Event-Driven Architecture (Diploma Thesis/Internship)



Our physical world is fundamentally driven by the principle of causality. The arrow of time carries causes that trigger consequences that are themselves causes and so on.

The internship proposes to explore this paradigm from an IT architecture perspective to evaluate how we can build a distributed system that only evolves through events, i.e. with components sending events and reacting to events with no orchestration and no imperative communication channels.

You’ll have the possibility to build a distributed system by exploring patterns such as CQRS or event sourcing, technologies such as Akka, Vert.x or reactive streams, messaging systems like Kafka, Pulsar or NATS, and serverless/container technologies.

The internship also proposes to make use of this study to explore how event driven architecture can help improve and simplify real time data analytics.

In this role

The objectives of this internship include:

  • Evaluation of the viability of the approach: can it lead to some form of deterministic behavior, which is something usually required from an IT system
  • Assessment of the testability, observability, security, transactional capabilities of such an approach
  • Study of data modeling implications
  • Synergies with Domain-Driven Design concepts that can be used in component implementation
  • Evaluation of concepts and technologies for event storage and event sourcing
  • Study of the way events can feed data lakes, data hub or data warehouses in order to support real time data analytics
  • Development of demonstrators on real use case
