Building Reactive Pipelines with Kotlin & Spring: How to go from scalable apps to (ridiculously) scalable systems

Building Reactive Pipelines with Kotlin & Spring: How to go from scalable apps to (ridiculously) scalable systems

Going from imperative, blocking code to a reactive programming model enables us to scale our apps in ways that aren't possible with a thread scale-out approach, which is a good thing! But as with all optimizations, one must examine & address the system holistically or all we accomplish is moving bottlenecks around, creating or finding new chokepoints as we tune certain applications/services. This is *not* so good.

In this session, the presenter discusses:
* How Project Reactor builds on reactive streams to help you create performant & scalable reactive microservices
* Message brokers & streaming platforms like RabbitMQ & Apache Kafka
* How Spring Cloud Stream leverages Reactor to provide fully reactive pipelines for system-wide (ridiculous!) scalability
* How Kotlin enables you to do so with less code and more elegance

The presenter will code all examples live and in real time. This is not an abstract discussion, come to gain real, practical knowledge!
