Reactive in Practice

So you're a Developer and you've heard of Reactive and are excited to see how you can use its guiding principles to make your application more responsive and resilient. In this workshop we'll take you through step by step how to transform your application into a truly reactive system that gracefully handles failure, elastically distributes resources and is responsive to your end users.

With the advances in hardware, containerization, and virtualization technology within the past decade, software such as reactive systems is catching up to take advantage of such. Implementing reactive systems and writing code using the reactive approach may sound difficult, but we will illustrate that this can be done in a very manageable manner. While reactive system is not a "one-size-fits-all" cure to all problems, it does seem promising to be a solution to computing challenges such as system responsiveness, resiliency, and scalability.

This workshop will provide a guidance on how to transform a legacy, monolithic, on-premise application into a modern, highly responsive, microservices and cloud-based system. We will utilize a series of "Quick Labs" from the IBM Developer resource library ( and work through building a few sample microservices together using an open-source reactive library (such as Eclipse Microprofile, Vert.x).
