You know that the future of software lies in Reactive architectures. Your users - and your business - need everything these hyper-responsive, resilient, elastically scalable applications have to offer.

But where to begin, and how to begin? Most likely, your day is already busy with tasks and to-dos, leaving you little time to continue learning. With so much great content out there, namely from our prolific Lightbend authors like Jonas Bonér, Markus Eisele, and Hugh McKee, it can be tough to identify where to start. A great place to start is to join the journey and bring Reactive to Java with Lightbend’s new “Journey Pack”, designed as a downloadable capsule of curated technical content.

Inside, you’ll find three O’Reilly eBooks in PDF format from Lightbend authors, leading you through the concepts around Reactive Microservices (i.e. from WTH to production ready) in about 150 pages:

  • Reactive Microservices Architecture: Design Principles For Distributed Systems (by Jonas Bonér, Co-Founder & CTO at Lightbend, Inc.)
  • Developing Reactive Microservices: Enterprise Implementation In Java (by Markus Eisele, Director of Developer Advocacy, at Lightbend, Inc.)
  • Designing Reactive Systems: The Role Of Actors In Distributed Architectures (by Hugh McKee, Developer Advocate at Lightbend, Inc.)
