Please log in to watch this conference skillscast.
During this talk, you will explore the following:
Thread per request vs asynchronous services
What back pressure is and how to do it all the way down to the network layer
How to achieve all of this with Akka HTTP and Akka Streams
How it compares to other tools for asynchronous programming e.g. CompletableFutures, Observables
Time permitting, you will also discover a demo on a networked application sending back pressure through the application layer, through TCP and into the client application.
