Part 1. The basics
In this book we discuss events. Many people associate the word event with a meaningful happening in their lives such as a graduation party or wedding. If you wanted to plan a wedding event, you would need to understand the basics, such as terminology for discussing plans with service providers, the family constraints that affect the nature of the event, and the different types of ceremonies available.
We start this book by explaining the basics of event processing. If you are already familiar with the basics you can browse through part 1, taking note of the terminology that we use in this book. If you’re not sure that you know what event processing is all about, this part of the book should fill in the blanks for you.
