Course Description and Objectives
This two-day Fast Track to Akka course, designed by Philipp Haller, a long-term member of the Scala team and recognized concurrency expert, is what you need to get started building powerful concurrent applications with the Akka event-driven middleware framework.
It is intended for developers who want to learn how to apply the tools and services provided by the Akka framework and runtime to build high-performance, fault-tolerant systems that scale.
Part of the course are hands-on exercises in which you build real Akka applications. Code examples and exercises will be written in Scala, so previous experience with Scala is required
- know how to design scalable, fault-tolerant concurrent applications using Akka's actors
- know how to test, tune, and configure Akka applications
- know best practices for designing asynchronous, event-driven systems using Akka
