And this week also saw the release of DZone's 201st Refcard: Reactive Programming with Akka

Reactive Programming with Akka

By Ryan Knight

Akka is a framework for Java and Scala that implements the Actor model of computation. The Actor model is ideal for concurrency and fault-tolerance, especially on heterogeneous and flexibly governed systems. This Refcard covers:

  • Defining and creating actors and messages
  • Actor hierarchies
  • fault-tolerance and self-healing
  • And much more!


Managing data at scale doesn’t have to be hard. Find out how the completely free, open source HPCC Systems platform makes it easier to update, easier to program, easier to integrate data, and easier to manage clusters. Download and get started today.
