Going Reactive with Spring 5 & Project Reactor

Published on Mar 23, 2017, Permalink

Yesterday, Stefan Tilkov from innoQ delivered a great talk. He spoke about different ways to slice the monolith and wether the "usual" approach (i.e. doing it like Netflix), really is the silver bullet:

We really enjoyed the humorous talk and good discussion. It’s interesting to see which ideas persisted of the years and still have value, despite the hype among surrounding technology.

Also, a big thank you to inside for hosting our talk!

Our next guest, Mark Heckler from Pivotal, coming all the way from St. Louis, Missouri, will certainly give his talk in English, but we have heard he’s a friend of beautiful, long German words, too:

Going Reactive with Spring 5 & Project Reactor

Spring 5 is almost here! One of the most exciting introductions in this release is support for reactive programming, building on Pivotal’s Project Reactor to support message-driven, elastic, resilient, and responsive services. Spring 5 integrates an MVC-like component model adapted to support reactive processing and a new type of web endpoint, functional reactive endpoints. In this talk, we’ll dive into the net-new Netty-based web runtime and see how to integrate it with existing Spring-stack technologies, learn how to leverage powerful new testing mechanisms to make code better and life easier, and tie it all together with a live coding demo. If there’s more to your life than CRUD, you need to be there!
