Building Reactive Applications at Scale (1 Day Workshop)

A session at React San Francisco 2014

Friday 21st November, 2014

9:00am to 5:00pm (PST)

Using Netflix as a case-study and NetflixOSS components for hands-on practice, learn how to apply reactive principles to application architecture both in the "big" and the "small". Starting at the distributed systems level learn how to handle failure, adapt to changing environments and usage patterns, and iterate quickly in an always-on globally distributed system. Then we'll dive into the code level building blocks of how reactive programming patterns enable fault tolerance and scalability within an application.
