Eclipse Vert.x is a toolkit to create reactive distributed and polyglot applications on the Java Virtual Machine. Vert.x is incredibly flexible - whether it's simple network utilities, sophisticated modern web applications, REST services, high volume event processing or a full blown back-end message-bus application, Vert.x is a great fit and has demonstrated huge benefits in production. There is another domain where Vert.x shines: scalable microservice systems.
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…
Let’s clarify all these reactive thingies. This session explores the reactive landscape and explains what all these different reactives are and how they are related.
Sick of the strict rules from traditional frameworks? Aspire to more freedom? Want to see some reactive code? In this talk learn to be a reactive stack Chef using the un-opinionated approach chosen by Eclipse Vert.x. Pick your language, your development model, the components from the thrilling Vert.x ecosystem, shake it and serve it hot!
