1. Who do you think should come along?
The talk should be interesting to any Java developer who wants to stay up to date with the changes
happening in the Java space. It should be especially useful for developers working with modern architectures, as I am going to cover WebFlux which was introduced in Spring 5 / Spring Boot 2.0.
Even if you are not a Java developer, understanding the principles of reactive programming on the
server side may change what you consider best practice.
2. What do you think are the three most interesting questions that this event will answer?
-How do I use Java Reactive Streams in the real world?
-When should I consider reactive programming?
-How is programming with Java Reactive Streams different from what I have been doing so far?
3. Why do you think this presentation is important for people?
I think reactive programming on the server side is still in its early phases. This is the best time to get ahead of the curve and be ready for the changes that are likely to become inevitable. The talk introduces the concepts and gives you enough details to get started with Reactive Streams if you feel ready.
4. Any advice for junior developers entering the industry?
Don’t stop learning and don’t think everyone else knows better than you do. You need to be both confident in your abilities, but also humble at the same time. If you are a Java developer, don’t dismiss C#, if you are using JavaEE, don’t dismiss Spring. Give it five minutes (https://signalvnoise.com/posts/3124-give-it-five-minutes)!
