Akka A to Z: A Toolkit for Fast Data and Microservices Architectures [Video]

This presentation on Akka talks about the essentials that aren't always addressed, like concurrency, routing, self-healing, persistence, clustering, and delivery guarantees.

Learn how modern cloud architectures use of microservices has many advantages and enables developers to deliver business software in a CI/CD way.

We’ve all heard of microservices, streaming data, event sourcing and CQRS — these are hot topics these days. But what about the less flashy stuff, like concurrency, routing, self-healing, persistence, clustering, and delivery guarantees?

These are all things you need in order to get distributed systems done right. The Akka toolkit makes all of this simple for Java and Scala developers who don’t have time to deal with all the low-level plumbing and manual wiring.

So what makes Akka so special? Well, as an Akka veteran who has built distributed systems with everything but the kitchen sink before discovering Akka nearly a decade ago, our Developer Advocate Hugh McKee is the ideal person to break it all down for us. Check out this illustrated journey that goes deep into how Akka works–from individual Akka actors to fully distributed clusters across multiple datacenters.
