The new Gartner Critical Capabilities report explains how APIs and microservices enable digital leaders to deliver better B2B, open banking and mobile projects.

RxJava is an awesome library for async data streams. It is both expressive and powerful but the learning curve can be quite steep at first. So we want to quickstart developers into the world of Reactive eXtensions with more context than just listing operators!

Adapted from a hands-on workshop, this talk will describe how one can migrate code into a fully async and RxJava-based application, built upon Spring Boot and Java 8.

What kind of changes does this require? What shifts in thinking? What are the traps and pitfalls to avoid? Hopefully you’ll learn the answers to these questions in this talk!
