This 5-part workshop series provides a guided, expert tour of implementing microservices with Akka Cloud Platform and Kubernetes.

From code and concepts to deployment, this series enables Java and Scala developers to rapidly create a functioning proof-of-concept: a microservices-based, cloud native Reactive Shopping Cart application on Kubernetes. From there, deploying to a cloud provider of your choice—namely with Akka Cloud Platform on the AWS Marketplace—is just a few keystrokes away.

This workshop series will focus on:

  • Guided walkthrough of the Akka Platform Guide's “Reactive Shopping Cart” microservices tutorial, starting from scratch.
  • Explore the code and technologies within the sample application, and the Reactive Principles and Patterns behind it all.
  • Deploy and deliver a cutting edge, cloud native microservices proof of concept that you can share with your colleagues and management team.

ABOUT PRESENTER

Hugh McKee, Developer Advocate at Lightbend, Inc.

Hugh is a solutions architect at Lightbend. He’s had a long career building applications that evolved slowly, that inefficiently utilized their infrastructure, and that were brittle and prone to failure. That all changed when he started building reactive, asynchronous, actor-based systems. This radically new way of building applications rocked his world. As an added benefit, building application systems became way more fun that it had ever been. Now he is focused on helping others to discover the significant advantages and joys of building responsive, resilient, elastic, message-based applications.
