Even though the CodeLab only walks through connecting one producer, one consumer, and one Postgres service, this architecture can easily scale both horizontally and/or vertically to meet enterprise grade requirements because everything is loosely coupled and event-driven!
Aaaaanddd… you can get up and running with a database-backed event-driven system for FREE, no credit card number required, using Solace and Heroku SaaS products. Free learning is the best kind of learning.
Full-stack development skills: This CodeLab will teach you how to provision a Heroku Postgres managed service and how to administer it using the Docker-based browser version of pgadmin4. This CodeLab will also teach you how to establish connectivity between everything!
If you’re still reading, you should navigate over to my CodeLab and jump right into it!
P.S. The best acronym I could come up with for this set of technologies is JMPS pronounced “jumps.” If you’re an acronym wizard and come up with a better one, tweet it to me at @andrew_bytes!
