Reactive Enterprise with Reactor and Spring

June 13, 2019  •  Toronto

Reactive Systems help drive down running and operational costs while enabling enriched user experiences. 

They have been considered disconnected from enterprise needs for a long-time given the limited reach of the reactive ecosystem. Reactive Systems are essential to build a microservices architecture: event-driven, resilient and scalable.

Now, all of this is changing with Spring Framework, Spring Boot and Reactor.

Come spend the day with the Pivotal Reactor team and learn how you can play the Reactive game with Spring, understand the core values of Reactive Systems and find a profitable use of those innovations. In your future software architecture designs, for your needs of today and tomorrow, you can count on the Reactive Spring stack to support your vision!

Stephane likes to talk about himself in the third person and is always way too early adopting practices or technologies. He is a very average programmer and engineering lead with even more subpar bio writing skills. Sometimes he creates open-source projects for an exclusive audience looking for pragmatic but still edgy solutions.
