Webinar: Going Reactive with Java 8

Yesterday we hosted a webinar, "Going Reactive with Java 8," which explored how lambdas make building Reactive applications a whole lot easier and cleaner. Through code examples and demos, Ryan Knight and Björn Antonsson showed how to build event-driven, scalable, resilient, and responsive applications with Java 8, Play Framework and Akka, with a particular focus on lambdas for async & non-blocking requests & WebSockets. Björn also showed how the actor model in Akka pairs well with lambdas to create an event-driven foundation that provides concurrency, clustering and fault-tolerance.
