In this course, we will learn how to write truly distributed systems with the powerful Akka Remoting and Clustering. You’ll write 1500+ lines of Akka code yourself, with guidance, and you will become a rockstar. You will learn the power of remote actors and clusters, including Cluster Singleton and Cluster Sharding, which normally take months (even years) to master.
This course is for Scala/Akka programmers who need to design high–performance, large–scale, reactive distributed systems.
You probably know Akka already:
it speeds up the development of concurrent applications by as much as 10x
its demand has exploded
it’s a highly marketable skill
it’s incredibly fun – power in your hands!
I like to get to the point and get things done. This course
deconstructs all concepts into the critical pieces you need
selects the most important ideas and separates them into what’s simple but critical and what’s powerful
sequences ideas in a way that clicks and makes sense throughout the process of learning
applies everything in live code
The end benefits are still much greater:
a completely new mental model around distributed systems, remote actors and clustering
a more marketable resume
more enjoyable work – Akka is fun!
This course is for established programmers with experience with Scala and Akka at the level of the Rock the JVM courses. I already assume a solid understanding of general programming fundamentals.
