The continued growth of Internet of Things (IoT) and mobile has forced applications to scale in unprecedented ways. The desire to easily scale an application has also moved many applications onto Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) which charges for every single resource. Reactive applications have become popular because they can scale with less resources.

Switching from threaded to reactive programming can be daunting. What is reactive programming? When and Why should reactive programming be used? How can you create a fully reactive stack?

In this talk Rob will discuss who is using Reactive programming and when it is appropriate. We will start by discussing how a threaded model works and then compare that to a reactive stack. We will then look at a few approaches to implementing a reactive stack. Finally, we will look at some simple examples that demonstrate the benefits of reactive programming.
