Take 60 minutes to understand the Power of the Actor Model with "Designing Reactive Systems: The Role Of Actors In Distributed Architecture". Brought to you in partnership with Lightbend.

Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Week in Spring! By happy coincidence, today is also Ada Lovelace day. According to the Finding Ada site: Ada Lovelace Day (ALD) is an international celebration day of the achievements of women in science, technology, engineering, and maths (STEM). It aims to increase the profile of women in STEM and, in doing so, create new role models who will encourage more girls into STEM careers and support women already working in STEM. Happy Ada Lovelace day!

I’ve just returned from the epic ByteMyCode conference in Wroclaw, Poland, and am now in Seattle, Washington to talk to customers and to hold an open event today at Pivotal Seattle on Cloud Native Java. Later today I’m off to Toronto, Canada to visit customers and appear at the SpringOne Platform Preview show happening later this week. If you’re around, don’t hesitate to stop in and say hi!

Learn how the Actor model provides a simple but powerful way to design and implement reactive applications that can distribute work across clusters of cores and servers. Brought to you in partnership with Lightbend.
