Intro to akka.io

"Akka is a toolkit and runtime for building highly concurrent, distributed, and fault tolerant event-driven applications on the JVM."
Akka can be used in Java and/or Scala. We'll take an introductory look at the framework including how you'd scale "up" (more cores) and "out" (across machines) from the same code base.

    Thanks Kal. That was interesting and gives me some ideas for some stuff I'm working on. I'm looking forward to the next session.

    'Akka in action' is half-price in the Manning deal of the day, but you'll need to *act* right away (July 3rd, in US time so still valid for a few hours) .. http://manning.com/
