March's meeting has accomplished author and NFJS speaker Venkat Subramaniam talking about Programming Reactive. If you only attend one CIJUG meeting this year, this is the one you want. If you attend two meetings this year, attend this one and anything with Dan Mullins.
This meeting will not be at our usual location, instead it will be at Principal Financial Group (750 Park St downtown.) The meeting will be in the z-shaped building, in the southwest corner of the 1st floor. The security entrance you’ll need to enter is also on the west side of the “Z” but on the north side. You access that entrance from Park St. Our security staff has asked attendees to park in lot L2, just north of the Z building.
Due to seating constraints, we will need everyone to sign-up in advance. If you do not sign-up, security will not let you in.
Big data, smart phones, tablets, wearable devices, multicore processors,…—we're seeing rapid and drastic evolution in both the computing environments and the application needs. Thankfully, a number of technologies have been evolving over the past several years to meet these demands. The reactive manifesto is an attempt to reenforce a set of technical practices needed to meet the emerging demands.
If you've heard and read about reactive programming, but are eager to realize that in code, then this presentation is for you. We will start with a rapid introduction and get into code to learn about reactive programming, not in theory but with practical examples.
