To keep up with growing system complexity, Typesafe co-founder and CTO Jonas Bonér spearheaded the Reactive Manifesto in 2013. The manifesto defines how to architect applications that participate in the new world of multicore, cloud, mobile and web-scale systems, with an architectural emphasis on being message-driven, resilient, elastic and responsive.
"A lot of companies have been doing Reactive without calling it 'Reactive' for quite some time, in the same way companies did Agile software development before it was called 'Agile,'" said Bonér. "But defining a vocabulary around the principles has made it easier for developers and architects to talk about and communicate the benefits of this architecture trend with their business counterparts. This survey is an important snapshot into the technologies and approaches that are being using to develop Reactive systems."
