Akka and Kubernetes: Reactive From Code To Cloud

Fabio Tiriticco gives a discussion on Akka & Kubernetes: Akka Cluster is a mature choice to achieve full elasticity for your distributed JVM services, but it was built in the era of VM deployments. The Kubernetes orchestrator is powering in with bags of zeitgeist and a growing set of features - think resilience or custom scaling metrics - that ultimately overlap with Akka Cluster's. This talk explores integration patterns between the two. Friends or foes?
