The Reactive Revolution

The reactive revolution continues. For as much as we've been talking about reactive programming in Spring for the last few years the journey has only just begun. Join me, Spring Developer Advocate Josh Long (@starbuxman), and we'll take our reactive applications further, looking at how to build microservices for cloud platforms like Pivotal Application Service (Cloud Foundry) and PKS (Kubernetes).

Some of the things we may cover include:
-reactive NoSQL data access
-reactive SQL data access with R2DBC
-orchestration and reliability patterns like client-side load-balancing, circuit breakers, and hedging
-messaging and service integration with Apache Kafka or RSocket
-API gateways with Spring Cloud Gateway and patterns like rate limiting and API adapters
-serverless programming with Spring Cloud Function and project Riff
-reactive authentication and authorization with Spring Security

Complete Bio (

Improving moved to 5445 Legacy Dr. in Plano. This is the Northwest corner of Legacy and Hedgcoxe. It doesn't have great signage right now so here is a picture of the south side of the building (the side facing Legacy) where you should park and enter.

A couple of things:

• Doors will be locked after 6:00 PM but we will be monitoring the south doors until the meeting starts at 7:00 PM.

• After that or if you can't get in before then and no one is watching text (469)[masked].

• There is parking on the north side of the building too.

Hope to see everyone there.
