AUSTIN, TX— (Globenewswire – October 11, 2017) – The program committee for Reactive Summit 2017—taking place in Austin, October 18-20—today announced a keynote and speaking lineup reflecting the foremost thinkers and practitioners behind the Reactive movement.

Featured speakers include Jonas Bonér (Lightbend Founder & CTO), Joel Horwitz (IBM Vice President Digital Business Group) and Mark Burgess (Technologist, Research and Advisor). Reactive Summit 2017 features over 30 breakout sessions with topics focused on microservices, fast data pipelines, and distributed systems. You may also attend one of the optional, hands-on pre-conference training workshops designed to help improve your understanding of microservices, fast data, and domain driven design.
