About the Reactive Foundation

Who’s behind the Foundation

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.
