The Reactive Manifesto's "Resilient" trait requires a system to stay responsive when failures happen. I'll discuss how real-world systems do this, starting with in-process techniques in Go, Clojure's core.async, and Reactive Extensions. Next, I'll discuss how some tools prevent common failures in the first place. I'll finish with the Actor model's strategic use of supervisor hierarchies.

The Reactive Manifesto attempts to codify core traits required of all so-called Reactive systems, without being overly prescriptive. The traits are Responsive, Resilient, Elastic, and Message Driven. Actually, these traits are a renaissance of classic ideas adapted to modern needs. I'll explain the traits and present several representative examples.
