Implementing the Reactive Manifesto with Akka - Adam Warski

It’s certainly fashionable to "be reactive", but what does it mean? How does reactive look in practice?

Akka contains a number of more or less experimental modules, with which we can create a [Responsive, Resilient, Elastic, Message driven]-application. We will see how various Akka features help in implementing the above traits.

During the presentation there will be a short introduction to the reactive manifesto, followed by writing a reactive application using Akka core, Akka Cluster, Akka Streams and Akka Persistence.

The presentation will be entirerly a live coding session, during which we will create a "reactive" application using Akka as the base toolkit. We will see how the various traits defined in the Reactive Manifesto can be implemented in practice using various Akka modules.

Who should attend:

Anybody who is interested in "reactive” systems (what’s behind the marketing) and/or Scala&Akka should find the presentation relevant.

Bio - Adam Warski:

I am one of the co-founders of SoftwareMill, where I code mainly using Scala and other interesting technologies. I am involved in open-source projects, such as Supler, MacWire, Hibernate Envers and ElasticMQ. I have been a speaker at major conferences, such as JavaOne, Devoxx, JavaZone or JFokus.

Apart from writing closed- and open-source software, in my free time I try to read the Internet on various programming-related subjects, any ideas or insights end up on my blog: http://www.warski.org/blog 

Agenda:  

18:15: Doors open
18:30: Main presentation - (60-90 minutes)
