Reactive I/O: The Key To Absolute Reactivity (20 minutes)
Reactive programming frameworks for the JVM are plentiful with RxJava, Reactor, Vert.X and Akka to name the kingpins. But what is a reactive application good for if your I/O sources and sinks are blocking? Luckily, recent developments have lead to a number of reactive drivers, frameworks and protocols spouting out of the ground. In this talk Phil will forge a truly reactive Java application in front of your very own eyes. He will make use of reactive database access with the Mongo Reactive Streams driver, reactive REST with Spring WebFlux and even dive into a brand new tailor-made reactive transport protocol: RSocket. There has been no better time than now to pickup the reactive mindset - support is rich and plentiful!
