WEBINAR REPLAY 

Advanced Akka For Architects

With Hugh McKee, Developer Advocate at Lightbend, Inc.

Audience: Architects; Developers

Technical level: Basic / Intermediate

By now, you’ve probably heard of Akka, the JVM toolkit for building scalable, resilient and resource efficient applications in Java or Scala. With over 12 open-source and commercial modules in the toolkit, Akka takes developers from actors on a single JVM, all the way out to network partition healing and clusters of servers distributed across fleets of JVMs.

In this technical webinar, O’Reilly author and Lightbend Developer Advocate, Hugh McKee, takes you on a deep dive into advanced Akka features for enhanced application resilience, elasticity, and responsiveness.

Building on real-world examples from his past experience as an Akka developer, Hugh will show how you can take advantage of:

  • Akka Multi-Data Center Clustering improves reliability across multiple data centers, availability zones or regions.
  • Logically grouping related nodes in large clusters to improve stability and scalability.
  • Akka Multi-Data Center Persistence for increased fault tolerance, locate data near the user, and balance the load across data centers.
  • Akka Cluster Sharding in a multi data center environment, to optimize shard locality within a single data center and go Active-Active for improved resilience and availability.

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.
