Programming Concurrency with Akka

A session at Lone Star Software Symposium

Saturday 21st July, 2012

1:30pm to 3:00pm (CST)

I call the JDK concurrency API as the synchronize and suffer model. Fortunately, you don't have to endure that today. You have some nice options, brought to prominence on the JVM by Scala and Clojure.

In this workshop, learn how to program with Actors and STM using Akka, a powerful and popular library created using Scala but usable from any language on the JVM. You have a choice to pick the language you like in this workshop, and learn how to use these powerful concurrency models.
