This public lecture given by Gideon de Kok at the University of Groningen (Computer Science Master program) will focus on software development for the "new era". The lecture will describe the challenges encountered in modern web / software stacks and how we can use functional and reactive programming principles to tackle these problems without introducing additional complexity.

After refreshing the basic concepts of functional programming, the lecture will show how a combination of both functional and actor based programming can be used to construct a powerful stack suitable for a wide array of applications.

The lecture will show, from a bottom up perspective, how Scala and Akka can be used to create reactive applications which are scalable in terms of load as well as codebase while keeping resilience to failure
