Learn how to create reactive microservices

Use reactive programming to calculate wait times for the Reactica roller coaster

The Reactica roller coaster is a new thrill ride at the Coderland theme park. This futuristic coaster takes guests on a terrifying journey they’ll not soon forget. In this series of tutorials, you’ll create a set of reactive microservices that respond as guests board the ride, as they exit the ride, as the coaster is shut down due to an accident, and as the wreckage is cleared and the coaster is back in operation.

Want to learn how? This series of articles and videos shows you how to build a resulting display that lets every guest in the queue know how much time they have to wait.
