Reactive streams are a shared effort of multiple companies and teams striving implementing stream processing libraries to make the stream processing on the JVM common and back-pressured. In this talk we’ll look into what the core concepts of reactive streams and how “dynamic push-pull based back-pressure” works in them. Then we’ll look into the upcoming akka-streams library, an implementation of the reactive-streams specification to see how these concepts can be used in practice.
