Reactive Web Development with Play! on Java 8

Written by Andrew Conner · Apr 30, 2014

James Roper, tech lead of Play! at Typesafe, spoke at Box in Mountain View, CA on 4/24/2014.

Code from the Java 8 project Play! Framework Meetup Group

Java 8 heralds a new era of reactive programming, with lambdas and promises taking the limelight as the bright new features of the language. To best take advantage of these features, Play Framework offers a ground up asynchronous full stack web framework, with a high velocity development environment, making it the most natural web framework to use with Java 8. This presentation will showcase the best that Java 8 has to offer in the world of reactive web development.
