    Going Reactive with Relational Databases

    Ivaylo Pashov
    Relational Databases have been a blocker for systems incorporating a fully reactive stack since the inception of the Reactive Streams specification. The new Reactive Relational Database Connectivity (R2DBC) can be considered as a game-changer towards achieving efficiency and resiliency on persistence level. Being one of the early adopters, incorporating R2DBC on an ETL that is processing 5 billion flight tickets per year, I will compare it with the existing alternatives in the same space. We will go through the existing APIs, the current limitations, the new Spring 5.2 reactive transactions, and some of the most useful constructs and patterns that emerge from using R2DBC.
    Ivaylo Pashov
    A developer highly specialized in asynchronous distributed systems. He has broad experience in different languages including Java, JavaScript (both frontend and backend), Delphi and C.

    Art through code: Image processing with javascript and barebones WebAssembly

    Samuil Aleksov
    I’ll tell you the story about my entrepreneurship in image processing. How I ended up getting 3 million users and lessons learned. It’s a great opportunity to understand the basic constructs and flows when working with images, but also for a WebAssembly 101. We’ll create beautiful effects without using any external libraries, emscripten included.
