Practical Java concurrency with the Akka Actor Model
$84.99 Track price
This course will cover how to use the Actor Model provided by the Akka framework to build robust, thread–safe concurrent applications with Java.
We’ll be leaving behind the traditional problems with multi–threaded programming, such as dealing with non–thread safe variables, deadlocks, thread interruptions and more. Akka gives us a completely different approach. Instead of creating threads, using synchronization, locks, semaphores and countdownlatches, we’ll learn how the actor model gives us a very different way to approach concurrent programming.
Learning the actor model from scratch can be a challenge, so in this course we build up the knowlege step by step, meaning you’ll have no problems following along and understanding everything we do. And the course is full of practical real–world scenarios, so that you’ll be able to take what you learn and apply it to your own projects. Our main case study is that we’ll be building a basic blockchain mining application.
Please note that although Akka is built in Scala, absolutely no Scala knowledge is needed for this course. This course covers Akka with Java and we won’t be writing any Scala code. It’s ideal for Java developers with some experience (although you certainly don’t need to be an expert).

A good introductory course to Akka with Actors.

Excellent course ?
Alexandru Toma –
Very good presentation
Leonardo Medina –
Excelent! ! ! I only add it’s a little bit difficult to me understand the example when we go for single process or parallel when you expose de BlockChain example. You are a very good teacher!

I find the videos go by way too fast. A lot of udemy programming courses I speed up 1.5x. For this course I had to keep it at 1x but even then I find typing of code goes by way too fast. By the time I’ve written one line of code the video has three more. Furthermore, the content is not paced to explain things and let them digest. I’m in chapter 7 and I still have no idea what’s the logic when making maven projects and why we are jumping back and forth between java classes. He says not to worry about the complexity of everything but I feel like a zombie and not absorbing any of the knowledge.
