Summary of the video

Reactive Streams is a new specification covering rules for how streams should behave in the reactive environment. It is proposed by many different organisations, such as Typesafe, Netflix, Oracle and many others.

Reactive Streams provides a set of the common interfaces which enable interoperability between sets of different modern languages and libraries working on Java Virtual Machine.

The Reactive Streams specification is still in the Release Candidate phase, but was already implemented by RxJava and Akka Streams. The ambition of the creators is to make it part of the future version of Java Language Specification.
