Implementing the Reactive Manifesto with Akka

A session at Y Soft Technology hour

Thursday 16th April, 2015

6:00pm to 7:00pm (CET)

It’s certainly fashionable to “be reactive”, but what does it mean? How does reactive look in practice?

Akka contains a number of more or less experimental modules, with which we can create a [Responsive, Resilient, Elastic, Message driven]-application. We will see how various Akka features help in implementing the above traits.

The presentation will contain a short introduction to the reactive ideology, and then (in a live-coding session) we will try to write a reactive application using Akka Cluster, Akka Streams and Akka Persistence.
