Lightbend Akka for Scala – Professional

Want to help your team to get up to speed with the core concepts of Akka and the Actor model, enabling them to build production-ready Akka applications? I have been working intensively with Akka since 2011 and am offering remote and in-house training for teams.


This two-day course introduces experienced application developers to the reactive Akka toolkit and runtime and the methodologies that enable the creation of real-world actor-based systems in Java on a single JVM. This course has extensive hands-on work and successive exercises build upon prior lessons learned to produce a fully functional application that is both message-driven and resilient by the conclusion of the course.


After having participated in this course participants should



Scala application developers wishing to learn the Akka concurrency toolkit.


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


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