SpringOne Platform 2016 Replay: Going Reactive: Building Better Microservices

Recorded at SpringOne Platform 2016.
Speaker: Rob Harrop, Skipjaq

Reactive provides developers with an elegant model for constructing applications out of communicating components that improves code readability, eases concurrent programming and supports fine-grained unit testing.

In this talk, we’ll see how this model is a natural fit for building resilient microservices. Specifically, we’ll see how to:

Abstract the outside world behind Reactive interfaces
Split a microservice into Reactive subsystems
Ease unit testing with Reactive components
Introduce concurrency to improve service performance
Use back-pressure to manage service load and increase resilience

Attendees should be familiar with basic Reactive concepts such as publishers and subscriber but need not have any real-world experience building Reactive systems.
