Today applications are deployed on everything from mobile devices to cloud-based clusters running thousands of multi-core processors. Users expect millisecond response times & 100% uptime. A coherent approach to systems architecture is needed. We want systems that are Responsive, Resilient, Elastic & Message Driven. We call these Reactive Systems. Reactive Architecture grew out of a need for software to remain fast & responsive when presented with the unique challenges of the modern world.
This workshop will introduce you to the principles that drive the movement towards Reactive Systems. This engaging & progressive hands coding session will invite developers to code along & learn how these programs & systems can be built.
Since we will be covering Java you should already be comfortable with running Java, compiling it ( Javac ) And its common build tools like Maven or Gradle
While it is not necessary for the attendees to have experience in reactive style of programming, an understanding of & some basic experience on the traditional imperative programming style is highly recommended.
Please bring a laptop.
