Advanced Akka With Scala
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 you 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
A basic knowledge of Akka as covered in the “Fast Track with Akka and Scala” course as well as a basic knowledge of Scala as covered in the “Fast Track to Scala” course with at least two months practical experience in developing with Akka and Scala.
