Updates for August on Akka, Lagom, Play and Scala

August is typically a month filled with vacation, sunburn and the other joys of summer. It's a month where we all take it a bit slower and try to gather more energy for the rest of the year. But it turns out that our amazingly active communities never sleep. And there's been plenty of news and highlights. This Tech Digest is designed to help folks specifically interested in Lightbend technologies like Akka, Play, Lagom and Scala to find what they need faster. So sit back, grab a cup of coffee and enjoy the most important information of last month in a single post.
