The Reactive Foundation is made up of Alibaba, Lightbend, Netifi, Pivotal and Vlingo as initial members and includes the highly successful RSocket specification and implementations.
The foundation establishes a formal open governance model for supporting open source reactive programming projects and builds a neutral ecosystem around reactive programming.
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. For more information on these core principles, see the Reactive Manifesto.
