In the ongoing evolution of paradigms for simplifying concurrency under load, the most promising addition is reactive programming, a specification that provides tools for handling asynchronous streams of data and for managing flow-control, making it easier to reason about overall program design. In this article we overcome the learning curve with a gentle progression of examples.
Yang Bo showcases reasons why React stumbles when used in complicated front-end projects and how his Binding.scala framework improves the experience.

The 10th annual QCon San Francisco was the biggest yet, bringing together over 1500 team leads, architects, project managers, and engineering directors.
JMeter is an indispensable tool for testing load and functionality of multi-tiered applications. This book is the manual that should have been included to help surmount the learning curve.
In this series we explore ways of making sense of data science - understanding where it’s needed and where it’s not, and how to make it an asset for you, from people who’ve been there and done it.
Although Clojure lacks the extensive toolbox and analytic community of the most popular data science languages, R and Python, it provides a powerful environment for developing statistical thinking
Reactor is a 4th gen reactive library launched by Pivotal. It builds on the Reactive Streams spec, Java 8, & ReactiveX. In this article we’ll showcase what Reactor brings to the reactive table
