Are you an experienced Java developer that would like to better understand the reactive Akka toolkit? This extensive three-day course is for you! The course's hands-on work and exercises provide the perfect environment to best learn to utilize Akka with Java!

This three-day course introduces experienced application developers to the reactive Akka toolkit and runtime and the methodologies that enable the creation of real-world actor-based systems in Java on a single JVM.

This course has comprehensive hands-on work and successive exercises that build upon prior lessons learned to produce a fully functional application that is both event-driven and resilient by the conclusion of the course.

Learn how to:

  • Know how to design scalable and fault-tolerant applications using Akka's actors
  • Know how to configure, test and tune Akka applications
  • Know best practices for designing asynchronous, event-driven systems using Akka
  • Be confident to start using Akka in production systems
