Advanced Akka with Java
This is a three-day advanced course on building distributed reactive applications using Akka and Java 8. It is intended for developers who already have a strong understanding of the fundamentals of building applications using Akka and Java on a single JVM and are looking to learn how to scale out to multiple nodes and 3rd party systems. This course has extensive hands-on work and successive exercises build upon prior lessons learned to produce a fully functional application that is both event-driven and resilient by the conclusion of the course.
