This three-day course introduces experienced application developers to the reactive Akka toolkit and runtime and the methodologies that enable the creation of real-world actor-based systems in Java on a single JVM. This course has extensive hands-on work and successive exercises build upon prior lessons learned to produce a fully functional application that is both message-driven and resilient by the conclusion of the course.
Prerequisites: Code examples and exercises will be written in Java 8 using the lambda API, so a basic knowledge of Java 8 is required. Students should bring their own laptop with Java 8 installed.
