Akka Cluster and Unconference

A special thanks to Unbounce for helping to organize this Meetup. Scala members, we're doing this Meetup a little differently this time. On Thursday, May 1st at 6:30pm we will be doing a combined "unconference" Meetup. To start, we'll hear Alex Keller's talk on Akka Clustering (since he was unable to make the last one), then we'll move into an unconference-style session where we vote as a group on what we want to talk about. This Meetup will be at Unbounce located at [masked] Water Street, Vancouver.


Alex Keller

The Road to Akka Cluster ... With Some Forecasts for the Future

With the flood of mobile devices, NoSQL databases and cloud services, you most likely already have experienced a distributed system first hand. Distributed computing is turning into a standard obstacle we all must plan for in our software applications. Writing distributed applications is both more important and more challenging than ever. We are confronted with Impossibility Theorems (CAP), Consensus Protocols, and Failure Detection. In this talk Alex presents the distributed computing landscape, from past to present and beyond. Along the way he discusses the decisions and trade-offs that were made when creating an Akka Cluster, its theoretical foundation, why it is designed the way it is and what the future of Event-driven, Scalable, Resilient and Responsive applications. 


Here's a breakdown:

6:00pm Doors open and mingling begins
