Developing scalable, concurrent + fault-tolerant applications with Akka Actors

Tuesday, November 18, 2014

This presentation will cover the use of Akka Actors as a method of developing highly-scalable systems in a highly fault-tolerant manner. It will begin with a look at the Akka Actors and their asynchronous, message-passing, share-nothing nature. Next, we will look at some of the flexible options available to developers using Akka, such as using the Akka Event-Bus for inter-Actor communication, Persistent Channel Communication, PArent-Child relationships, and EventSourcing with Akka. Lastly, a full-featured example will illustrate how we can leverage the previous concepts to develop a CQRS-with-EventSourcing high-volume enterprise-class application with minimal effort. Although Akka is built on Scala, the examples presented here will be in Java (this is AJUG, right?)
