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
  • be confident to start using Akka on large scale


  • Course Overview and introductions
  • Akka Basics Reloaded
  • Remoting
  • Clustering
  • 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 Lightbend Akka for Scala – Professional course).

Code examples and exercises will be written in Scala, so a basic knowledge of Scala as provided by the Lightbend Scala Language – Professional course is required.

Students should bring their own laptop with Java 8 installed.

Details and format

  • 2 days course
