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.
If you missed the live session or would like to re-watch the webinar, you can check out therecording now, or flip thorugh the slides here.
We also encourage you to get started with the Typesafe Activator Java 8 templates, and register to get a free PDF E-Book subset (3 chapters, 78 pages) of "Java 8 in Action" by by Raoul-Gabriel Urma, Mario Fusco, and Alan Mycroft and qualify for a 40% discont of the full book.
Lastly, if you're interested in checking out the results from our recent Java 8 survey, you can access the PDF here.
Thanks all, hoping to see you on our next webinar!
