Link – dev.to

A great post by Barry O Sullivan on what, in my mind, is one of the biggest advantages of event sourcing: the ability to create projections.

Projections are a necessary part of any event sourced or CQRS system. These systems don't rely on a single generic data source such as a normalised MySQL database. Instead you build up your data sets by playing through the events, i.e the “film”, "projecting" them into the shape you want.
