Akka in Practice

About this Workshop

Akka is an excellent toolkit for building Reactive Systems, because its foundation – the actor model – facilitates distribution, fault tolerance and loose coupling.

In this workshop we learn how to use the various Akka libraries, including Akka Typed, Streams, HTTP, Persistence and Cluster to build a Microservice based system.
