Reactive programming, reactive extensions, reactive Streams, reactive systems, reactive manifesto. That's a lot of "reactive" thingies. Just to make it even more confusing, "reactive" is often associated with asynchronous, scalability, RX libraries (RX Java, RX JS), back pressure, streams, observables, futures, promises, spreadsheets and so on. That's a lot to digest...
If you wonder what reactive means and where it can help you, attend this session, you won't be disappointed. We will not only explain, but also demonstrate the different benefits, explain how all these reactive" thingies are related, and how you can use them today.
This session is about reactive programming and how it can be used to build responsive systems. It will cover what is reactive programming, and why it's interesting to use it today when building microservices or an application interacting with something" else. It also presents why you need to rethink your execution model to fully benefit from the reactive programming paradigm, and how Eclipse Vert.x helps you to do that.
