Going Fully Reactive with Project Reactor and R2DBC

Modern apps face scalability challenges often characterized by inefficient memory and CPU utilization. This is especially true when applications use huge thread pools. Reactive Programming is a paradigm that seeks to solve these problems by making all calls to I/O operations in a non-blocking fashion to reduce the thread count as close to one as possible.

In this talk, you’ll learn how to get rid of huge thread pools by using Project Reactor and the R2DBC specification and go fully reactive. You’ll also learn how to make informed decisions by comparing blocking vs. non-blocking services confirming that there’s no silver bullet!
