Going Reactive: Building Better Microservices - Rob Harrop
Recorded at SpringOne Platform 2016. Slides: http://www.slideshare.net/SpringCentral/going-reactive-building-better-microservices-rob-harrop 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 microserivce 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.
