Vert.x is a toolkit for building reactive applications on the JVM. At the JAX Innovation awards, it was awarded “Most Innovative Java Technology”. It is event driven, non blocking and polyglot, therefore it an excellent platform for building microservices.
In this talk, Bert Jan Schrijver shares experiences and real-world use cases from a Dutch company that started building reactive web applications with Vert.x about 3 years ago.
You’ll learn the concepts behind Vert.x, why they chose it, how they’re using it and the challenges they faced. Topics include the anatomy of the projects, (micro)services architecture, deployment model and DevOps, scalability, the upgrade from Vert.x 2 to Vert.x 3 and cooperation with the team behind it.
At the end of this session, you’ll know enough about Vert.x to get started right away!
