Reactive, what an overloaded word. Many things turn out to become magically Reactive these days. In this post, we are going to talk about Reactive Programming, i.e. a development model structured around asynchronous data streams.
I know you are impatient to write your first reactive application, but before doing it, there are a couple of things to know. Using reactive programming changes how you design and write your code. Before jumping on the train, it’s good to know where you are heading.
In this post, we are going to explain 5 things about reactive programming to see what it changes for you.

This is the second session, which I gave at Red Hat Summit; this was an exploration of what is behind the reactive trend. Software is fiction, every season we have a new collection, we all have to follow this and right now, it’s reactive.

Do you know the battery level in your smartphone is controlled by reactive software; which is software that reacts to a set of external events, such as requests, failures, availability of services, etc? This was what I recently addressed as a slideless session consisting of pure, live coding at the Red Hat Summit this past May.

I’m thrilled to announce the availability of a mini-book about Eclipse Vert.x. This book focuses on the development of reactive microservices in Java and covers reactive systems and reactive programming.
Writing a book, even for a mini-book is a tough task. While writing code and writing a book are very different experiences, you can apply the same process and good practice. I would like to list a couple of tips I’ve used to make the writing a bit easier.
