What you'll learn

  • Learn how to build reactive, resilient microservices with Spring


Spring Framework 5 is here. It introduces Java developers to growing support for reactive programming—a style of software that makes more efficient use of CPUs when faced with I/O-intensive operations (typical of all distributed systems).

Join Josh Long to learn how to build reactive, resilient microservices with Spring. Along the way, you’ll explore the new Netty-based web runtime Spring WebFlux, Spring Data Kay for reactive NoSQL-based data access, Spring Security 5.0 to protect your services, and Spring Boot 2.0 to support microservices concerns like API gateways.
