Workshops will cover fundamental aspect of programming with use of actor model. Basing on Akka implementation we will try to create concurrent mini system, so primary traits of Akka actors system can be highlighted.

Exercise will be available on GitHub (, so please clone and compile it before workshops. It's written in Scala, so we will be able to practice coding in this language as well.

During workshops we will encounter some unsolved (in scope of our first meeting) problems, which will refer to more advanced topics.

To easily build and run code I recomend using idea IDE. It requires Scala SDK, JDK only (I think MVN is bundled in idea). Just remember to set main/scala as a source and add Scala SDK.

For eclipse same setup + Scala IDE plugin will be probably required (not confirmed).

Project can be also run directly from JAR (java -jar {path to built jar}.jar thanks to scala-plugin and shade plugin.
