In this first of three podcasts with live Q/A, we explore the underlying technologies and approach of Reactive systems. Akka Team member and Reactive Streams contributor Konrad Malawski will detail what you should know about: The differences and trade-offs between synchronous blocking I/O and asynchronous non-blocking I/O, what these mean for execution efficiency as well as code maintainability. The difference between event-driven and message-driven approaches in terms of design considerations in the small and the large as well as the costs and benefits of either way. The role of flow control in Reactive systems, how it impacts service latency and throughput and which technologies are available to help with implementing it.
