Details

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.

The presentation will contain a short introduction to the reactive ideology, and then (in a live-coding session) we will try to write a reactive application using Akka Cluster, Akka Streams and Akka Persistence.

As always, after the talk, there will be a bit to eat, something to drink and a lot to talk about.

About Adam

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 .
