Presenting Play Framework and Reactive This Week in Boulder, Dallas, and Vancouver

This week I’ll be circling around North America presenting about Play Framework and Reactive Apps. Here is the lineup:

  • Tuesday Feb 11 in Boulder, Colorado at the Boulder JUG:
    6pm – Intro to Play Framework
    7:30pm – Building Reactive Apps
  • Wednesday Feb 12 in Dallas, Texas at the Java MUG:
    6:30pm – Building Reactive Apps
  • Thursday Feb 13 in Vancouver, BC at the inaugural Vancouver Reactive Programmers meetup:
    7pm – Building Reactive Apps

It is going to be a fun week – I hope to see you at one of these events!

Intro to Reactive Composition with the Typesafe Reactive Platform

Reactive apps are all the rage lately. The Reactive Manifesto now has over 2000 signatures and all of my recent presentations about Reactive have been packed. I’ve just recorded a screencast that explains the async and non-blocking aspect of Reactive. This screencast walks through how to do Reactive Requests and Reactive Composition with the Typesafe Reactive Platform. Using Play Framework it is easy to handle async and non-blocking requests (Reactive Requests) and compose them together. This can be done with both Java and Scala but for this screencast I use Scala. Check it out and let me know what you think:

Building Reactive Apps in Austin

Tomorrow night, October 15, I will be presenting in Austin Texas about Building Reactive Apps. Here is what I will be talking about:

Non-blocking, asynchronous, and reactive programming models are all the rage today. This session will explore in-depth why these patterns are important in modern apps. We will drill down and see how to apply them to event-driven web, mobile, and RESTful apps. To illustrate the concepts, we will use Java, Scala, Akka, and the Play Framework as examples.

Sign up if you can make it! Hope to see you there.

Play Framework and Reactive Presos in New York

This week I will be in New York presenting about Play Framework and Reactive Apps. Here is the lineup:

Diving Into Play Framework’s Deep End – Tuesday, October 8

Play Framework is simple to get started with, but it also has some very advanced and powerful features. This session will explore some of these features, including Action Composition, Filters, Reactive Requests, WebSockets, Advanced JSON, and Dependency Injection. Through lots of code, you’ll dive (or be thrown) into the deep end of Play.

Building Reactive Apps – Wednesday, October 9

Non-blocking, asynchronous, and reactive programming models are all the rage today. This session will explore in-depth why these patterns are important in modern apps. We will drill down and see how to apply them to event-driven web, mobile, and RESTful apps. To illustrate the concepts, we will use Java, Scala, Akka, and the Play Framework as examples.

Intro to Play Framework – Thursday, October 10

Play Framework is the High Velocity Web Framework For Java and Scala. It is lightweight, stateless, RESTful, and developer friendly. This is an introduction to building web applications with Play. You will learn about: routing, Scala controllers & templates, database access, asset compilation for LESS & CoffeeScript, and JSON services.

If you are in the New York area I hope to see you at one of these events!

Going Reactive at the Denver Java Users Group

Tonight (Sept 11, 2013) I will be presenting Going Reactive! Building Software for the Real-Time Generation at the Denver JUG. Here is what is on tap:

Non-blocking, asynchronous, and reactive are all the rage today. This session will explore why the patterns are important in modern apps and how to apply them to event-driven and RESTful apps. To illustrate the concepts, Java, Akka, and Play Framework will be used as examples.

Looking forward to meeting more developers from my neck of the woods.

Building Reactive Apps at SpringOne 2013

Next week at SpringOne 2GX 2013 I’ll be presenting a session about Building Reactive Apps. Here is the description:

Non-blocking, asynchronous, and reactive are all the rage today. This session will explore why the patterns are important in modern apps and how to apply them to event-driven web, mobile, and RESTful apps. To illustrate the concepts, Java, Scala, Akka, and Play Framework will be used as examples.

Hope to see you there!

Building Reactive Apps with the Typesafe Platform

It is becoming pretty clear that Reactive is the next big thing in software. But there aren’t very many resources yet about how to actually build a Reactive application. Recently I hosted a webinar about “Building Reactive Apps with the Typesafe Platform” where I tried to explain Reactive in a tangible way using the Reactive Stocks sample app from Typesafe Activator. Here is the recording of that presentation:

Let me know what you think. Thanks!
