Speaker: Venkat Subramaniam
Reactive Programming in gaining a lot of attention recently, but what is it? It is a culmination of a lot of good ideas developed over the years, but brought together by the forces of recent developments, both in terms of software and hardware (multicores, mobile devices). Developing an application fast is easy, but developing applications that are responsive and resilient is not. In this presentation, we will quickly go over what reactive programming is and what a reactive application is, and then dive into code level details of how to actually create them.
