Vert.x is a lightweight, high performance, application platform for the JVM that’s designed for modern mobile, web, and enterprise applications.

The recent Vert.x 2.0 release marks a coming of age for Vert.x, as it progresses to a fully independent project.

We’ll dive into the Vert.x 2.0 release and show how the powerful new module system enables a Vert.x ecosystem by allowing modules to be re-used via Maven and Bintray repositories.

You’ll also learn about how better build tool and IDE integration makes developing applications with Vert.x a breeze.

You’ll also learn about the up and coming Scala, Clojure support, and Node.js drop in compatibility which will take Vert.x to an even broader set of users.
