Fast Track to Akka with Scala

Scalable reactive application, for the win! Experienced application developers learn the reactive Akka toolkit and runtime, along with methodologies to create real-world, actor-based systems in Scala on a single JVM.

Participant

  • Developers with basic knowledge of Scala, as covered in “Fast Track to Scala”
  • Developers who want to develop resilient, event-driven, scalable applications
  • Managers who want to learn how reactive applications drive business value

Benefit

  • Developers gain knowledge and skills to design fault-tolerant apps using Akka
  • Certified Lightbend Trainers share how to configure, test, and tune Akka apps
  • Production readiness - create asynchronous, event-driven systems

Outline

  1. Introduction to Akka
  2. Actor Basics
  3. Testing Actors
  4. Actor Lifecycle
  5. Fault Tolerance
  6. Scaling up with Routers

Logistics

  • Level: Intermediate - knowledge of and practical experience with Scala is assumed
  • Length: Two days - 14 hours of classroom time, plus breaks
  • Approach: Extensive hands-on coding - students develop a workshop case study and produce a fully functional application that is event-driven and resilient
  • Requirements: Students must bring their own laptops with Java 6 or higher installed
