I’m a Lightbend training partner and certified to deliver various training courses in English, German and French. The courses are designed to bring developer teams of all sizes up to speed with reactive technologies. All courses can be done on site or remotely.
There are currently no upcoming trainings, please check back soon.
Manuel recently delivered one of his courses at Deveryware to help our development team get on track with Akka for Java. It makes things a lot easier that Manuel also offers his workshops in French, and the whole team made a lot of progress during the training.
I especially appreciate Manuel’s flexibility and the work he put into making the training a perfect fit for us. He even went out of his way to accommodate our scheduling problems so that all our developers could attend the course.
I contacted Manuel to teach us a bit more about Akka for a new project that required our team to get to know the distributed side of Akka. The course went really well — so well, in fact, that we’re probably going to book another one for more of our people.
I first reached out to Manuel via Twitter and we hashed most of the course out in direct messages. This is the kind of flexibility and openness I welcome from partners.
We had to replace a key component in our system and brought Manuel in to introduce us to Akka. We had already been looking closely at a different solution, but Manuel’s prototype quickly convinced us that Akka would be the best choice for us.
Manuel used three connected Raspberry Pi computers to demonstrate how lightweight and fast the Akka toolkit is. He then got our team up-to-speed on the technology and supported us while we developed and successfully implemented our new system with Akka. In this critical process, his expertise with distributed systems was invaluable to us.
Wirecard has been growing substantially over the past couple of years. Consequently, we needed to rethink our architectural paradigm to support this sustained growth going forward.
We found that reactive microservices were the perfect solution, allowing us to scale up in terms of transaction volume. The microservices architecture also lets us fully leverage our international developer teams as it allows them to work independently without requiring constant communication, which is crucial for a company that operates on a global scale.
Manuel has been accompanying us on this journey since 2016, training our teams on Akka and Akka Cluster. He also performs regular architectural reviews, which helps us stay on track as the project evolves. Furthermore, Manuel has been giving us great advice when it comes to advanced technical topics, such as performance tuning.
It’s incredibly helpful to have a distributed systems expert at hand to guide our teams so we can ensure our core systems are capable of supporting our business growth.
