Book Description

In traditional concurrent programming, it’s hard to achieve accuracy and even harder to achieve performance. Vert.x has a revolutionary approach that takes care of all the thread orchestration, message passing, and shared data in the framework. Deadlocks? Synchronization? Thread pool management? These are now problems of the past.

Instant Vert.x Starter is a practical, hands-on guide that provides you with a number of clear, step-by-step examples, which will help you to get the best out of the Vert.x platform and asynchronous programming in general.

This book gives an overview of the advantages of asynchronous programming, especially the Vert.x concurrency model. You will learn how to properly set up your environment with all the necessary tools to get you going with the authentic JVM-polyglot experience with Vert.x. After basic examples in JavaScript, Ruby, Python, Groovy, Java, we’ll dig deeper into more real tasks using JavaScript.

With Instant Vert.x, you will learn everything you need to know to be an independent web application developer, ready to create real-world web applications in no time.
