Codetown ::: a software developer's community
Join us for a Reactive Spring talk featuring Miguel Mendez.
Miguel Mendez is a software engineer from Orlando Florida. He currently works for FlexEngage as a Lead Developer.
With more than 20 years of experience in the business he is passionate about web technologies, user experience and distributed systems.
As a Domain Driven Design practitioner he believes in the importance of understanding the core domain in order to build useful software.
Reactive programming has been getting lots of attention lately, Projects like Reactive Extensions (Rx) library in the .NET, RxJS, RXJava, and lately Project Reactor have brought Reactive programming into the main scene. Reactive programming is basically programming with asynchronous data streams.
Spring 5 (first milestone June 2016) has reactive features built into it, including tools for building HTTP servers and clients.
We will see a very familiar programming model using annotations to decorate controller methods to handle HTTP requests, for the most part handing off the dispatching of reactive requests and back pressure concerns to the framework. We will also take a look at a more functional way of building web applications on Spring.
