Erik Meijer (famously known for LINQ, lots of other .NET goodies, and tie-dye shirts of timeless beauty) teams up with Typesafe‘s Martin Odersky (Scala Language) and Roland Kuhn (Akka) to bring you a 7-week-course on the Principles of Reactive Programming, starting on November 4, 2013.

The slogan is quite cheeky:

It seems like every great scientist and every great salesman is trying to lift the database industry to “the next level”, these days. Exciting times for database professionals!
