    Understanding Akka Streams, Back Pressure and Asynchronous Architecture

    with Konrad Malawski

    The term 'streams' has been getting pretty overloaded recently–it's hard to know where to best use different technologies with streams in the name. In this talk by noted hAkker Konrad Malawski, we'll disambiguate what streams are and what they aren't, taking a deeper look into Akka Streams (the implementation) and Reactive Streams (the standard).

    You'll be introduced to a number of real life scenarios where applying back-pressure helps to keep your systems fast and healthy at the same time. While the focus is mainly on the Akka Streams implementation, the general principles apply to any kind of asynchronous, message-driven architectures.
