The Essential Reactive Programming with Akka Cheat Sheet
Akka is a framework for Java and Scala that implements the Actor model of computation. The Actor model is ideal for concurrency and fault-tolerance, especially on heterogeneous and flexibly governed systems. This Refcard briefly covers theoretical issues, then dives in to defining and creating actors and messages, actor hierarchies, fault-tolerance and self-healing, and more.
