Reactive Programming: the fastest way to create new SQL applications via REST

Free beer, t-shirts, soda, candy, edible goodies & swag!

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. Building on key learnings from the past, as well as leveraging the momentum of cloud computing, Val spent the last two years perfecting technology to deploy business logic and security on REST and SQL in the cloud.

Prior to co-founding Espresso, Val was the CTO of Versata; a company that was one of the top 5 IPOs of 2000 and initially funded visionaries such as Paul Allen and Hasso Plattner from SAP. At Versata, he led the development of a J2EE development environment for large-scale transactional and workflow applications. Versata supported tens of thousands of concurrent users and was deployed hundreds of Fortune 500 firms including ADP, Equifax, Fidelity, IBM, Merrill Lynch and Sears.

    Is reactive programming always functional, or how do the two relate? thank you ! [masked] ; 2.Manifesto

      Honestly not an expert in functional, but my sense is yes: the Reactive Programming expressions are functions, in fact can be JavaScript functions. They are also required to be side-effect free - they only return a value.

      Perhaps one difference is that (in our application) there is a great deal of optimization happening, such as pruning expressions that don't need to be run since their dependent data has not changed, and ordering based on dependency analysis.
