Hookdeck and Building an Event Gateway with Alex Bouchard

Event-driven architecture is a software design pattern where system components communicate through events that are generated by producers, and pushed to consumers. This design is often contrasted with a request-driven architecture, where components communicate with each other by sending requests and receiving responses.

Hookdeck is an event gateway for receiving, processing, and delivering asynchronous messages. It centralizes and streamlines communication between services, like a 3rd party API such as Shopify or Stripe, and internal endpoints or other APIs.

Alex Bouchard is the Co-founder of Hookdeck. He joins the podcast to talk about event-driven architecture, building event bridges, expanding Hookdeck beyond webhooks, and much more.
