J-Fall 2018: Berwout de Vries Robles – Impromptu Orchestra

In recent years there have been some large developments in web technology. The introduction of HTTP/2 in 2015 has given new life to Server Sent Events as Reactive Streams.

To explore these technologies with you, I have made an application that turns the audience into an orchestra using Reactive Streams.

In the talk we will look at how and why HTTP/2 came to be. I will show you what you need to do to make use of HTTP/2.

I will give you practical guidelines to help you choose between Reactive Streams and Websockets.

I will explain the core concepts behind Reactive Streams. When we have the concepts down I will show you how to use Reactive Streams with the Java 9 API’s and Spring Reactor.

Finally we will see just how “Reactive” Reactive Streams truly are in a live demo. Bring your cellphones so you can participate in the Impromptu Orchestra!


My talk will have been a success when at the end of my talk:

You understand why we have HTTP/2, what the main features are and how we can use them in practice.

You have gained a better understanding of what Reactive Streams are, when to use them and how they work.

You have experienced the real-timeness of Reactive Streams in a live situation

Berwout de Vries Robles

In June 2017 I graduated from Windesheim University as a Software Engineer. During my studies I spent half a year at a Canadian college for a minor. My English speaking ability is near-native. I have spoken in front of groups larger than twenty people before and I am a confident speaker. I currently work at Info Support in a DevOps team that delivers supporting tools and techniques for other Software Development teams. My work supports the Java teams we have at Info Support and some teams that use our Software at external customers. What I love about my job is that I get to think about and research the applicability of new technologies in a practical setting.
