Track: Reactive Architecture Tactics


Day of week:

Reactive Services are not an HTTP wrapper around an ORM. Building reactive services doesn't require any special tools or frameworks, just some imagination, understanding of how computers actually work, and the will to be awesome. Our speakers share the secrets of building fault-tolerant, responsive services and demonstrate the techniques needed to level-up your own practice.

How can statelessness, component isolation, and well-defined protocols reduce the complexity of ever-increasing business requirements?

This talk will explore functional techniques for managing complexity, examine what makes them successful in pure functional programming, and propose ways that they can be applied in any programming context. We'll find that programmers can obtain a wide variety of benefits from this practice: unit tests are easier to write and their results are more...

This talk will outline features of actor and functional programming models, and the reason these models attract so much interest in parallel, concurrent, and scaling world.

I’ll also talk about fault tolerance, its importance in large scale systems, and the approaches to implement it.

Finally, I’ll talk about observations and lessons we learned while designing SD Erlang -- a small extension of distributed Erlang for reliable scalability.

Building reactive applications requires a different frame of mind than "traditional" software. This talk will identify the central implications of “reactive” on system design, development and operation. There are ways to incorporate this shift in thinking into your own practices without having them overtake your entire daily work.

A wide variety of data is increasingly obtained in a push-based manner. Think of sensors in health tracking devices, home automation and IoT, but also changes to the world’s information such as flight information, breaking news, etc. To make sense of this wide range of signals, the world needs rich querying capabilities for event streams.

In this talk, we’ll discuss how the reactive programming paradigm fits these requirements and can be applied from small devices all the way to cloud...

Event Sourcing and CQRS have become common implementation patterns used in core components of many modern software systems, however some use these patterns far more successfully than others.

In this talk we'll look at several common problems which have arisen across projects spanning many different industries, and how to avoid them.
