Workshop: Reactive Microservices and DevOps Pipelines with Red Hat OpenShift Application Runtimes

Location: Marquis A&B, 9th fl.

Duration: 9:00am - 4:00pm

Day of week: Monday

Level: Intermediate


If you are a developer who keeps up with the current trends in the industry, then Reactive Microservices is probably one of those buzz phrases you hear a lot and perhaps even don't understand very well. In this session, we will take a look at a group of interconnected microservices written using Eclipse Vert.x and deployed on OpenShift/Kubernetes for scalability. We will go through a deep dive of using standard APIs OR Vert.x's Event Bus/Service Proxy capabilities to have microservices communicate with one another in a reliable and fault-tolerant manner. We will discuss circuit breakers, service mesh, scalability, reactive and non-blocking, and clustering through the lens of Eclipse Vert.x.

Key takeaways:

  • Become familiar with basic practices around reactive programming
  • Become familiar with Eclipse Vert.x and it's non-blocking/event-driven APIs
  • Learn to deploy Vert.x microservices on Kubernetes/OpenShift and scale them
  • Learn about the Vert.x EventBus and how it can be integrated with the User Interface
  • Have fun!
