Polyglot, Reactive, Microservices with Vert.x

Are you looking at microservices and wondering how you can get the most out of the concept quickly? Does the ability to use multiple languages and being able to use them together appeal to you? Want to have a simple API for creating reactive microservices in minutes?

In this half-day session, you will be introduced to Vert.x, a toolkit for creating reactive microservices. We’ll show you how you can quickly develop microservices, cluster them, using polyglot capabilities in languages like JavaScript, Ruby, Java, Groovy, or Kotlin. Even better, we’ll show you how you can include any and all of those languages in a single application if you desire. We’ll discover a fast workflow for real-time coding and debugging using whatever development environment or editor you prefer.

What to expect:

  • Reactive Basics
  • Using the Vert.x quick-starts
  • Introduction to the Vert.x core
  • Running applications with automatic redeploy for rapid development
  • The Vert.x Event Bus
  • Vert.x web and Router
  • Extending the event bus to the web client using websockets
  • Async database access (MongoDB/Redis/PostgreSQL)
  • Distributed Data Grid and Distributed Locking
  • Clustering your application in seconds
