Microservices architecture brings a lot of complexity from the get-go. Things like service discovery, state management, and resilient service communication become very important and need to be implemented properly when building distributed systems. A lot of difficult decisions are involved - what programming languages to choose, frameworks, libraries, etc. Dapr is a portable, event-driven runtime that makes it easy for enterprise developers to build resilient microservices applications, by providing best practice implementations as building blocks that you can use in your distributed applications.

In this session, we will explore the basics of Dapr, what benefits it brings for your applications, and how to get started using it. Alongside that, you will learn about the different hosting modes of Dapr.
