Building Reactive Applications with Akka

The demands and expectations for applications have changed dramatically in recent years. Applications today are deployed on a wide range of infrastructure; from mobile devices up to thousands of nodes running in the cloud—all powered by multi-core processors. They need to be rich and collaborative, have a real-time feel with millisecond response time and should never stop running. Additionally, modern applications are a mashup of external services that need to be consumed and composed to provide the features at hand. We are seeing a new type of applications emerging to address these new challenges—these are being called Reactive Applications

In this talk we will introduce you to Akka and discuss how it can help you deliver on the four key traits of Reactive; Event-Driven, Scalable, Resilient and Responsive. We will start with the basics of Akka and work our way towards some of its more advanced modules such as Akka Cluster and Akka Persistence—all driven through code and practical examples.

    any chance the RSVPs will be reopened?

      Unfortunately we are bounded by available space and need to put a cap on rsvps

      1 · March 13, 2014

    • Bocheng Z.

      You can still put the cap on rsvps if you set up a waitlist instead of just closing the rsvp. It is very unusual and unfair to close the rsvp for an event 2 weeks away.

    could it be another day, not Wednesday? please :)

    • Charles L.

      Agree--last Wed. of the month will frequently conflict w/ Google Developers' Group.

      March 10, 2014

    • Doug T.

      There are always going to be conflicts with other tech Meetups, because tech Meetups happen all the time in NYC. We scheduled this in coordination with when Jonas would be in town.
