Kevin Webber: Akka Streams

Pub/sub, dynamic push/pull, non-blocking, non-dropping; these are some of the concepts we'll cover, but more importantly we'll discuss how to leverage streams in a real-world application. Are streams just collections? How do I incorporate streams into a real world architecture? What are the benefits? These are a few of the questions we’ll answer during this talk.

About the speaker: Kevin Webber is Enterprise Advocate at Typesafe, Inc. ( He is also the founder of Reactive Toronto (
