RX Java: Reactive extensions for the JVM
With mobile apps getting more complex, we want to provide interactive solutions to users, where they never face a situation where the app hangs or freezes.
We introduce the reactive programming paradigm in Java and show how it can be used to build asynchronous, resilient and scalable apps and systems while keeping the code easy to reason about.

Reliable and scalable workflows with AWS Step Functions
At Viki, we have multiple workflows and pipelines crucial to our business, which ranges from content ingestion from our content providers to email verification for users. A single workflow usually consists of an array of steps, including tasks and decisions.
As our business grows, it is vital that the engineering team finds solutions to make our workflows scalable and reliable.
This talk will focus on how we leveraged AWS services to accomplish it and how you can apply the same concepts and tools set to ensure you have peace of mind when it comes to handling complex workflows.
