We’re thrilled to present learning content that we’ve been developing for quite some time with the assistance of IBM and Lightbend.
Reactive in practice: A complete guide to event-driven systems development in Java is a 12 part series that takes learners through the entire spectrum of a real-world event-sourced project from inception to deployment. Complete examples of this material are very sparse in the industry because they are so time intensive to create, but with the support of IBM through the IBM Developer portal, along with review assistance from Lightbend, we’ve brought this material to life. We hope it inspires the community and showcases best practices of these technologies.
The first four units of the series will guide readers through the inception of an event-driven project. Rather than dive into code straight-away, we bring techniques that we use in our consulting practice to readers, such as:
Once readers are up to speed on the basics, we walk through prototyping the Reactive Stock Trader UI using Vue.js, which we leverage to challenge our assumptions during higher-level design phases such as Event Storming and DDD. Once we’re happy with the prototype, we use it along with our models to define an API using the OpenAPI Specification. Finally, we begin to introduce the building blocks of an event-sourced system based on Java, Play, and Lagom.
We encourage readers to complete the units in order, but if you’d like to read these out of order, who are we to complain! We’re sure you’ll extract some tips, tricks, and best practices either way.
Links to individual units are below:
We’re going to cover some of the most exciting topics of modern programming in depth over the next 4 units, which will be released shortly.
The series has been produced by RedElastic with the help of IBM and Lightbend. We can’t thank both companies enough, both for the support and the wonderful tools that they produce.
RedElastic is considered one of the premier, boutique consulting firms in the space of Intelligent Reactive Systems development. We're a proud Lightbend consulting partner and help companies around the globe with their reactive systems and machine learning initiatives.
