TOPIC: The RSocket Revolution 

RSocket is here! RSocket is a binary, reactive, and operations-friendly wire protocol that integrates that builds on top of Project Reactor. Engineers originally developed RSocket at Netflix. Then they moved to Facebook. RSocket was the fledgling project for the Reactive Foundation, of which the spring team, Lightbend, Facebook, Alibaba, and others are founding members. RSocket represents the operational insight of some of the largest organizations in the world. And, it readily integrates with Spring. Join me, Spring Developer Advocate Josh Long (@starbuxman) in this rapid, reactive ride on the RSocket rocket, and we’ll look at the rich Spring support for RSocket and its use in building faster, more robust and more scalable services.
