An open source software foundation dedicated to promoting the usage of reactive programming and systems in production.

What are Reactive Systems?

Building modern, cloud native applications often require reactive systems that are responsive, resilient, elastic and message driven. The Reactive Foundation offers a neutral ecosystem of support for open source projects enabling developers building reactive applications on cloud native infrastructure. Reactive Systems is set of principles promoting responsive, resilient, elastic, message-driven design patterns.

What is Reactive Programming?

Reactive programming is a subset of asynchronous programming and a paradigm where the availability of new information drives the logic forward rather than having control flow driven by a thread-of-execution. Reactive programming is thus a declarative programming paradigm for data streams and the propagation of change, and simplifies the creation of interactive user interfaces and near real-time system interaction.
