We have invited Scala expert Heiko Seeberger to give a talk and demonstrate how to turn a simple service from running on a single server to an Akka cluster.
Come along and discover various advanced Akka features and patterns, e.g. spray (or Akka HTTP), Akka Cluster and Akka Persistence.
About Akka Akka is a toolkit and runtime for building highly concurrent, distributed, and fault tolerant event-driven applications on the JVM.
About Spray spray is an open-source toolkit for building REST/HTTP-based integration layers on top of Scala and Akka. Being asynchronous, actor-based, fast, lightweight, modular and testable it's a great way to connect your Scala applications to the world.
About Scala Scala is a functional programming language on the JVM.
