More talks in the program:
17:30 - 18:20
What does it mean for our programs to be asynchronous and back pressured and why is it important? This talk aims to answer these questions. We’ll cover:
– Thread per request vs asynchronous services
– What back pressure is and how to do it all the way down to the network layer
– How to achieve all of this with Akka HTTP and Akka Streams. Time permitting we’ll also demo a networked application sending back pressure through the application layer, through TCP and into the client application.
