Krakow, Poland, 19 - 21 June 2024

When building resilient distributed applications, event-driven applications and logs like Kafka have become one of the most popular choices. But in the recent years, a new kid has appeared on the block of event processing tools: durable execution engines (e.g. Restate, Temporal). 
In this talk, we will take a look at event-driven apps and durable execution engines differ and when to use which one. 
The key topics are:
 - How do both models provide reliability of application logic? What does the developer need to do and take care of?
 - How do they manage asynchronous tasks, decoupling of synchronous parts from and long-running work
 - How do applications manage state?
 - How are they deployed, how are they operated (clusters, deployment, scaling)
 - How can applications be observed and debugged?
 - What typical use cases and sweet spots do the different approaches have?
Join this talk to learn how each technology tackles these aspects, and what their main differences are.
