We will quickly go over what reactive programming is and what a reactive application is, but then dive into code level details of how to actually create them.

Reactive Programming in gaining a lot of attention recently, but what’s is it? It is a culmination of a lot of good ideas developed over the years, but brought together by the forces of recent developments, both in terms of software and hardware (multicores, mobile devices). Developing a fast application is easy, but developing applications that are responsive and at the same time gracefully handle failure, to be resilient is not. In this presentation we will quickly go over what reactive programming is and what a reactive application is, but then dive into code level details of how to actually create them.
