Lightbend Akka for Scala – Expert

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



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.

The on-site training course costs 8000€ for up to 10 participants, excluding travel and accommodation costs.
