Val Huber, CTO & Co-Founder, Espresso Logic

A Database Month event

Gartner lists reactive programming as one of the new techs to watch in 2014. In this session Val Huber, Espresso Logic CTO, will explain what is Reactive Programming and how it solves common problems. You will also learn how Reactive can simplify and accelerate backend database and business logic development.

You will also learn how you can leverage the advantages of the SQL schema to develop RESTful applications with SQL Server as fast, or faster, than with a NoSQL database. You will also see examples of Reactive Programming in action, development of new REST APIs for SQL and learn how to create an instant data-driven application in seconds.

Val Huber is Co-Founder and CTO at Espresso Logic ( Val has over 20 years experience building technology to accelerate the development of business applications. As a founder, he sees the mission of Espresso Logic is to offer a truly agile way for mobile and web developers to build backend applications.
