After many months, I'm proud to announce the release of the beautifully-designed Going Reactive 2016 (PDF). From my perspective, this is the most significant data set to be published on Reactive systems to date. You can review a quick slide preview on the Typesafe blog.
Summarized into 3 main conclusions, our sample population of over 3000 respondents revealed:
- Reactive systems are entering the mainstream.
- The main drivers of Reactive systems are Microservices-based architectures, and Fast Data streaming systems.
- Respondents working with these driving forces overwhelmingly prefer a specific group of tools and technologies (which we explain in great detail inside!)
...and much more, including some nice findings on Java 8 and Scala, Apache Spark, Play Framework and Spring, and so on.
