Lightbend Training

With Jamie Allen

Play Akka Scala

Having a team adopt new technologies and approaches to software development is a daunting task. New paradigms and unfamiliar ontologies headline the biggest risks to having a team be productive quickly. Lightbend has a suite of training classes to help you adopt whatever components of the Lightbend Reactive Platform you need to be responsive to you customers by creating resilient and elastic applications.

In this webinar, we discuss the philosophies and structures of Lightbend's training materials for Scala, Akka, Play Framework, and Spark.

Reactive Revealed 3/3: Resiliency, Failures vs Errors, Isolation (and Containment), Delegation and Replication in Reactive systems

with Jonas Bonér

In the final webinar with live Q/A in the Reactive Revealed series, we explore the way that Reactive systems maintain resiliency with an infrastructural approach designed to welcome failure often and recover gracefully. Presented by Reactive Manifesto co-author, Akka creator and CTO at Typesafe, Inc., Jonas Bonér explores what you should know about:

  • What you should know about maintaining resiliency with monolithic systems compared to distributed systems
  • How Reactive systems handle errors and prevents catastrophic failures with isolation and containment, delegation and replication
  • How isolation (and containment) of error state and behavior works to block the ripple effect of cascading failures
  • How delegation of failure management and replication lets Reactive systems continue running in the face of failures using a different error handling context, on a different thread or thread pool, in a different process, or on a different network node or computing center

A Deeper Look at Reactive Streams with Akka Streams 1.0 and Slick 3.0

A Deeper Look at Reactive Streams with Akka Streams 1.0 and Slick 3.0

with Endre Varga

Reactive Streams 1.0.0 is now live, and so are our implementations in Akka Streams 1.0 and Slick 3.0.

Reactive Streams is an engineering collaboration between heavy hitters in the area of streaming data on the JVM. With the Reactive Streams Special Interest Group, we set out to standardize a common ground for achieving statically-typed, high-performance, low latency, asynchronous streams of data with built-in non-blocking back pressure—with the goal of creating a vibrant ecosystem of interoperating implementations, and with a vision of one day making it into a future version of Java.

Akka (recent winner of “Most Innovative Open Source Tech in 2015”) is a toolkit for building message-driven applications. With Akka Streams 1.0, Akka has incorporated a graphical DSL for composing data streams, an execution model that decouples the stream’s staged computation—it’s “blueprint”—from its execution (allowing for actor-based, single-threaded and fully distributed and clustered execution), type safe stream composition, an implementation of the Reactive Streaming specification that enables back-pressure, and more than 20 predefined stream “processing stages” that provide common streaming transformations that developers can tap into (for splitting streams, transforming streams, merging streams, and more).

Slick​ is a relational database query and access library for Scala that enables loose-coupling, minimal configuration requirements and abstraction of the complexities of connecting with relational databases. With Slick 3.0, Slick now supports the Reactive Streams API for providing asynchronous stream processing with non-blocking back-pressure. Slick 3.0 also allows elegant mapping across multiple data types, static verification and type inference for embedded SQL statements, compile-time error discovery, and JDBC support for interoperability with all existing drivers.
