Recipes to develop a reactive and cloud-ready application using Scala and Akka

L'incontro si è tenuto Giovedì 6 Novembre 2014 presso Veespo (mappa) in Via S. Maria alla Porta, 9 - Milano.


Abstract dell'intevento:
Non-functional requirements have become increasingly challenging during the last years. Nowadays we expect at least that every application provide fast response time and almost 100% uptime. Reactive Applications is a set of principles and architectural patterns allowing to build event-driven, scalable, resilient and responsive systems. One of the most interesting technologies to create Reactive Applications is the Typesafe stack and, in particular, the Akka toolkit. During this talk I will introduce it, showing how develop a reactive and cloud-ready Scala web application.
