Scaling Up With Akka And Scala
Thursday, May 9, 2013 at 9:00 AM - Friday, May 10, 2013 at 5:00 PM (PDT)
Course Description and Objectives
This two-day course is what you need to get started with building powerful concurrent applications with Akka and Scala. It is intended for developers who want to learn how to apply the tools and services provided by Akka to build high-performance, fault-tolerant systems that scale. Large parts of the course are hands-on exercises in which you will build a real-world Akka application. Code examples and exercises will be written in Scala, so previous experience with Scala is required.
After participating in this course you should:
- 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
- be confident to start using Akka in production systems
- Actor basics
- Testing actors
- Actor lifecycle
- Fault tolerance
- Scaling up with routers
