IBM Developer Event: Master Reactive Systems using Lagom Microservices

August 7, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

IBM Developer Event: [Hands-on] Master Reactive Systems on IBM Cloud using Lagom Microservices

NYC Blockchain Center and Founding Member IBM Developer Team cohost this series of developer events.

About the Event:

Building reactive systems is hard. Especially when there are few examples out there. Most of them are complicated boilerplate solutions that seldom work and are difficult to extend and modify for your own use cases. While there are many options to build these kind of systems like OpenLiberty, Erlang or even bespoke solutions, it’s hard to decide what will bring you a maintainable and sustainable system in terms of development skills and ROI for the firm.

In this workshop, we will teach you how to use the Lightbend Platform – the most operationally robust solution for deploying Reactive Microservices, adding the ability to infuse your applications with intelligence based on real-time streaming and Machine Learning (ML). We will use Domain Driven Design, a technique that is commonly used to build Reactive Systems. The Lightbend Organization has partnered with IBM to create the IBM Reactive Platform so you will be well on your way to creating world class enterprise solutions for your company!

Attendees can expect to walk away understanding:

– Lightbend ecosystem – specifically Lagom Microservices framework

– How to code a Reactive system on the IBM Cloud [https://developer.ibm.com/code/2018/06/21/start-building-lagom-microservices-ibm-cloud/ ]

– Domain Driven Design


6:00 pm – doors open, pizza, drinks, & networking

7-8:15 pm – presentation & workshop – Q&A + additional working time

9 pm – venue closes
