Be Reactive

I’m not sure which one was the first when I met this reactive idea. Maybe Odersky’s Principles of Reactive Programming was that. It’s a really great but not too easy Coursera session with Scala, of course. And there is the core, The reactive manifesto. You can signed it if agree with this. Yes, I signed it.

It’s all about the standard vertical and horizontal scaling stuff. The main idea contains 4 points:

  1. react to events (Event driven programming)
  2. react to load (scalability)
  3. react to failure (resilient systems)
  4. react to users (responsive)

Best implementation of Reactive manifesto is Akka toolkit.

Be Reactive.
