Session Info:

Lightbend (formerly Typesafe) has come up with their own framework, Lagom, for architecting microservices based systems. With Lagom, Lightbend wants to take up the competition with the Spring Cloud stack.

Lagom is written in Scala and built upon Akka and Play and focuses on reactive and message-driven APIs, distributed persistence with Event Sourcing and CQRS and high developer productivity. On the 10th of March a first MVP version has been released containing only the Java API. Version 1.3.0 of Lagom introduced the Scala API and has been released on the 22nd of February 2017.

This talk will be an introduction to Lagom and the Scala API.
