This Week in Spring - May 12th, 2020

Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! I hope you’re all doing well, staying safe, taking socially distant walks every day to get some fresh air and exercise, and so on. I’m trying my best to stay sane. We just crossed into month three-under quarantine, having gone into quarantine on 11 March 2020. It’s pretty crazy to think about how slowly and quickly time has flown.

One of the things that makes me happy? Learning new things. This weekly roundup, This Week in Spring, has always been a lot of fun for me. It’s become even more of a privilege in the age of quarantine, having something to learn and soak up. I know that most of us will get through this, but I’ve been very keen on not letting this time go to waste for me. It’s exhausting to live under this quarantine. It’s exhausting to be anxious about things. I completely understand the instinct to want to just stay in bed until it all blows over. It’s completely normal. You’re allowed to be anxious, to worry, to feel despair. I have those days, too. But, I have found it helpful to try to plan activities with my family and to focus on backburner projects. And I find walking to be helpful. My condo’s gym is closed because of the coronavirus pandemic. I’ve nonetheless found walking, meditation, or really any fairly mindless activity, supports the process of learning. Anyway, that’s just me, friends.

Getting Started With RSocket: Servers Calling Clients

Reading Time: about 7 minutes.
Coding Time: about 20 minutes.

If you’ve been following my series on RSocket, you’ve heard me refer to “clients and servers” many times. But, with RSocket, the line between client and server is blurry. With Rsocket, servers can send messages to clients, and clients can respond to these requests in the same way a server would.

In fact, the RSocket docs don’t use the terms ‘client’ or ‘server.’ The docs use the terms ‘requester’ and ‘responder’ instead. In RSocket, any component can act as a requester, and any component can act as a responder or even both at the same time. In RSocket, all this back-and-forth communication between requesters and responders takes place over a single ‘bi-directional’ connection.
