Micro-services are an extremely common development pattern in the industry. There are a ton of libraries and frameworks focused on making their development as easy and painless as possible. As soon as we introduce the streaming keyword however things change, this is now a much more niche problem with different characteristics. Most frameworks do not offer built-in support for them and building them using low-level libraries like Akka can be a slow and difficult process.
Spekka is a library built upon and extending Akka with the objective of making the development of streaming micro-services as productive as possible.
In this talk we will use Spekka to develop a simple but somewhat realistic stateful streaming micro-service, starting from the raw input, expanding our implementation along the way to consider aspects like fault tolerance and scalability.
