Jonas Boner's Akka Workshop

We believe that writing correct concurrent, fault-tolerant and scalable applications is too hard. Most of the time it's because we are using the wrong tools and the wrong level of abstraction.

Akka is here to change that. Akka is using the Actor Model together with Software Transactional Memory (STM) to raise the abstraction level and provide a better platform to build correct concurrent and scalable applications. For fault-tolerance it adopts the "Let it crash" model which have been used with great success in the Telecom industry to build applications that self-heals, systems that never stop. Akka's Remote Actors, together with the Clustering module, provides the abstraction for transparent distribution, adaptive automatic load-balancing and cluster rebalancing, replication and is the basis for truly scalable and fault-tolerant applications.

In this course you will learn what Akka is, the ideas behind its design and implementation and how it can be used to solve hard real-world problems. It is a practical hand-on course with roughly and equal split between theory sessions and labs.
