Tags: , , , , , ,

Vert.x is a lightweight, high performance, reactive application platform for the JVM that’s designed for modern mobile, web, and enterprise applications. In this talk you will learn about the design principles and motivation behind Vert.x and why we are heading for a reactive future.
 You will also hear an overview including demonstrations of some of the key features of Vert.x including the distributed event bus which extends right into the browser, high availability, and the module system. Demonstrations will involve examples in Java, JavaScript, Scala, Groovy and Python. You’ll also learn about how improved build tool and IDE integration simplify the process of developing applications with Vert.x – including short demonstrations of module auto-redeploy from the IDE and executable “fat jars”.
