WebSocket based chat app in 10 minutes using Spring Boot, Reactor and Vaadin


Vaadin Flow is a next-generation web framework on the JVM. It lets you build UIs out of Web Components and HTML tags in plain Java or other JVM languages or use HTML templates to define your UI. Flow handles routing, data binding, and validation. It syncronizes your data model automatically using a WebSocket channel between your server and the browser. Together with Spring Boot and Project Reactor it provides probably the easiest way to build a web based chat application.

In this presentation, you'll get an introduction to the core concepts in Vaadin through a live coding demo. We'll build a small Vaadin app from scratch using Spring Boot.
