Advanced Akka with Scala
Want to help your team in getting started with building distributed reactive applications using Akka? I have been working intensively with Akka since 2011 and am offering remote and in-house training for teams.
This is a two-day advanced course on building distributed reactive applications using Akka and Scala. It is intended for developers who already have a strong understanding of the fundamentals of building applications using Akka and Scala on a single JVM and are looking to learn how to scale out to multiple nodes and 3rd party systems. This course has extensive hands-on work and successive exercises build upon prior lessons learned to produce a fully functional application that is both event-driven and resilient by the conclusion of the course.
After having participated in this course participants should
- know how to use Akka’s remoting and clustering features
- understand how to integrate 3rd party systems
- know how to create a RESTful HTTP layer
- be confident to start using Akka on large scale
- Course Overview and introductions
- Akka Basics Reloaded
- Cluster Aware Routers
- Cluster Singleton
- Cluster Sharding
- Akka Persistence
- Akka Distributed Data
Experienced application developers with prior Akka and Scala knowledge wishing to learn how to use the Akka concurrency toolkit in a distributed context.
Knowledge of and practice of Akka is assumed (see the related Fast Track to Akka with Scala course).
Code examples and exercises will be written in Scala, so a basic knowledge of Scala as provided by the Fast Track to Scala course is required.
Students should bring their own laptop with Java 8 installed.
