Akka is an open-source toolkit and runtime for building concurrent and distributed applications for Java and Scala.

This instructor-led, live training (onsite or remote) is aimed at developers, especially Java developers. Participants will learn the design principles behind Akka, including the Actor Model and Reactive Manifesto, as they build and deploy an Akka application.

By the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Build and deploy an asynchronous, message-driven application in Akka.
  • Apply the "let it crash" model to build applications that self-heal.
  • Understand Actors, the Actor Lifecycle and how to employ them to create concurrent systems.
  • Build Reactive Architecture that is responsive, elastic, resilient, and message driven.
  • Integrate remoting and clustering features with third party systems.
  • Deploy the Akka toolkit in production systems, scaling it to multiple nodes and third party systems.
  • Manage system behavior and horizontal distribution.
  • Build systems that "react" to environmental changes.

Format of the Course

  • Interactive lecture and discussion.
  • Lots of exercises and practice.
  • Hands-on implementation in a live-lab environment.
