Zalando is moving the calculation of product availability from monolith "Jimmy" to the new platform architecture.

As this architecture is event-driven, Joachim and his team decided on using Akka Streams for this task back in June (you can read more about this decision here ).

But what has happened since then? During this talk, you will explore an experience report about the learnings of the team: about hopes, regrets and best practices. On the way, you will discover the architecture of our component, how you interact with the other microservices around you, and how you can deploy and monitor.

The Call for Papers is now open for Scala eXchange 2017! Submit your talk for the chance to join a stellar line-up of experts on stage. Find out more.
