Akka Summer of Blog Ending Soon

Did you ever think "man, Akka is so cool, I’d like to contribute, but writing code which survives the hAkkers’ review is just too hard"? Here's your chance.

This summer, we've been running a guest blogging contest called the "Akka Summer of Blog" on the Akka Team blog at

The winner of the contest will recieve an exclusive, black Akka Team hoodie, signed by Akka tech lead Viktor Klang (aka √). Every author of an accepted post will receive an Akka T-shirt. 

The competition ends Aug 31st, so submit your entries soon. Read all the details here. We already have a few posts published, tagged as «summer of blog», which you can use as inspiration. Good luck!
