You can think of Vert.x as an Actor-model-based, functional event-driven, messaging passing platform that speaks in modern protocols (JSON, WebSockets, etc) and can be used from many JVM based languages but bridges the communication gap between the browser and the server in a new way. Convincingly Vert.x is like a Node for the JVM, but with some fun enhancements.

We'll cover:

  • What, Why and Who of the Vert.x project
  • Discuss the problem space it is good for
  • Demonstrate and discuss concepts and features of Vert.x
  • Show a variety of demo apps illustrating how it works
  • Current State of the Project
