4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Keeping up with the pace of change in emerging technology is an ever present challenge for enterprises. Trying to build systems that age and evolve gracefully over time is not a small task. We are all familiar with frameworks that help us implement architectural patterns, especially application architecture. In this session we will investigate Lagom, a new class of framework designed for system building, specifically, Reactive Systems. I will discuss common challenges I've encountered implementing large scale Reactive Systems and review Lagom features designed to address these challenges head-on. Though an investigation of this Scala-based framework, we will learn how

Managing the Reactive World with RxJava

Location: Salon C

2:45 PM - 3:45 PM

The world around our programs are inherently asynchronous. RxJava builds on the primitives offered by the Java platform in order to model these asynchronous sources in an easy-to-consume way. This talk will be an exploration about how to think about these asynchronous sources, the tools that RxJava provides to handle them, and a look to the future of Java and how it will affect the library.
