A Guided Tour of Akka Cloud Platform 

Starting Apr 14, 2021, this 5-part Akka workshop series provides a guided, expert tour of implementing microservices with Akka Cloud Platform and Kubernetes.

From code and concepts to deployment, this series enables Java and Scala developers to rapidly create a functioning proof-of-concept: a microservices-based, cloud native Reactive Shopping Cart application on Kubernetes. From there, deploying to a cloud provider of your choice—namely with Akka Cloud Platform on the AWS Marketplace—is just a few keystrokes away.


This workshop series will focus on:

  • Guided walkthrough of the Akka Platform Guide's “Reactive Shopping Cart” microservices tutorial, starting from scratch.
  • Explore the code and technologies within the sample application, and the Reactive Principles and Patterns behind it all.
  • Deploy and deliver a cutting edge, cloud native microservices proof of concept that you can share with your colleagues and management team.
