Learn Reactive Architecture For Free, At Your Own Pace

“I have enrolled. Thanks very much for giving such quality skills for free. Wooow.” - @ffumwa

Lightbend and IBM Cognitive Class have teamed up to introduce the parts 1 and 2 of six free, self-paced, online courses on Reactive Architecture. Based on our three-day, instructor-led training “Lightbend Reactive Architecture - Professional” (next sessions Sep 10 & 18), development managers, architects, and software developers can now freely learn all about Reactive Systems, from design through to production readiness in the cloud or on-prem. Plus, you can get a certificate proving your skills at the end!


New Chapter Released For “Serving Machine Learning Models”

If you haven’t downloaded “Serving Machine Learning Models”, the excellent O’Reilly eBook by Lightbend’s Principal Architect, Boris Lublinsky, then now is a good time. Boris recently published a new chapter on Speculative Model Serving on Lightbend Tech Hub, extending the expertise provided in the book—which you should probably read first ;-) You can also sign up early for Boris’s Nov-1 webinar on this very topic.
