Reactive user interfaces need to scale from handling dozens to sometimes hundreds of updates per second, to changes in data on a daily or weekly basis, as well as handling input from users. This means that literally everything is a stream of data.
We will discuss and demonstrate how the trading applications we've built make reactivity a first-class concept to compose these streams to provide real-time information about the state of the market and the platform. We'll talk about building reactive applications that handle requests that time out, data that gets out of sync, and servers that fail - all elegantly and without refreshing the page.
