One of the biggest problems when dealing with legacy is any change to the software might break the old system. Refactoring is usually slow and dangerous. In this talk I will discuss how we successful migrated an ancient legacy project to an event-driven architecture using just the power of events and Kafka.

Really fun way to get to know the Strangler Pattern. Fantastically done, as always!

Very well presented and an interesting case. Just enough time spent explaining things like events without running too long. Very practical.

Great humor through sarcasm. Good talk, mainly because of the real project example. Got some great potential solutions to some of my own challenges.

Very engaging talk and an awesome solution to a difficult problem!

Great talk very recognizable. As a Kafka enthousiast I would like to see more Kafka instead of in the end. That would make it a 5/5

As always I enjoy the talks/stories of Jeroen! This time one little remark, I would love to see/hear more of the technical implementation of Kafka instead of the client story. Maybe this was the intent but ran out of time? That's the reason for an 4 out of an 5. ?

Amazing talk. I know that some would like it a little more technical but that's just the style of Jeroen and I like it.

Had a lot of fun, and learned new things

Juust right.

I also missed the Kafka bit a bit. had hoped to see more about it. Other than that it was solid presentation with a good story. Thanks.

Great story, but like others have said: I was expecting a little more Kafka.

I like Jeroen's style, it was an entertaining talk as always. But on the content side I felt it fell a little short: many concepts are touched on which gives the impression of being shallow (while Jeroen most certainly knows a lot about all the tpoics mentioned), and the actual problem being solved is described in great detail, but I think some parts of the solution don't really add to the story and can be left out.
This might leave a little more space to get into the Kafka end of things.

Thank you for sharing your experience on this subject. I have placed Kafka on my list of things to look into. Would like to see some more in depth configuration/usages in this presentation.
Thank you!
