Newly Launched Reactive Foundation Provides Resources, Opportunities for ISVs

The Linux Foundation has announced the launch of the Reactive Foundation, which establishes a formal governance model for supporting open-source reactive programming projects. The foundation’s initial members are Alibaba, Facebook, Netifi and Pivotal, and it includes open source RSocket specification and programming language implementations. RSocket, created by Netflix, is designed to support reactive programming and enable microservices-based and cloud applications to replace HTTP with a more efficient, high-performance alternative.

Ryland Degnan, Co-Founder and CTO at Netifi and Reactive Foundation community chair, told DevPro Journal, “The foundation is the outcome of a long-term collaboration among the founding companies. The idea was to find the best way to build software that’s scalable and that reacts to changes within the system.”
