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.

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:

    A very good talk, main topics were perfect explained during the coding session! Big up for Adam how easy he could present and educate about complex topics.

    yep, it was an interesting speech. The only problem I had was that I was lost from time to time. What would help me is if you show a motivation (high level picture what you are going to build) at the beginning the would be easier to follow. But it was great to see Akka in action. Thank you and Y-soft!
