The demands and expectations for applications have changed dramatically in recent years. Applications today are deployed on a wide range of infrastructure; from mobile devices up to thousands of nodes running in the cloud—all powered by multi-core processors. They need to be rich and collaborative, have a real-time feel with millisecond response time and should never stop running. Additionally, modern applications are a mashup of external services that need to be consumed and composed to provide the features at hand.
We are seeing a new type of applications emerging to address these new challenges—these are being called Reactive Applications.
Intended Audience: Programmers, architects, CIO/CTOs and everyone with a desire to challenge the status quo and expand their horizons on how to tackle the current and future challenges in the computing industry.
