The discussion of databases could go on forever. But out of all the extended topics that didn’t make it into the book, there is ONE which I’d recommend you learn about first, and that is event-driven architectures.
Now, we haven’t learned about back-end architecture yet (it’ll come in Chapter Eight), but it’s still valuable to learn a little about “events” because they’re such a paradigm shift in how we think about “data.”
To that end, I’d like to share with you this video below about “Apache Kafka.”
Disclaimer: I have no affiliation with the makers of this video and do not endorse their products or services in any way. But I think they did a good job of teaching in this video, so here it is.
Another essential topic to discuss is blockchains. I did not cover them in my book, but there I will soon write a very thorough article that explains everything you need to become “tech fluent” about them, so watch this space!
