Description

In this course, we will learn how to write reactive distributed applications using the powerful Akka Streams. You'll write 2000+ lines of Akka code yourself, with guidance, and you will become a rockstar.

This course is for Scala/Akka programmers who need to design large-scale reactive asynchronous 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 

  1. deconstructs all concepts into the critical pieces you need

  2. selects the most important ideas and separates them into what's simple but critical and what's powerful

  3. sequences ideas in a way that "clicks" and makes sense throughout the process of learning

  4. applies everything in live code

The end benefits are still much greater:

  • a completely new mental model around streaming and reactive systems

  • 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.

This course is NOT for you if

  • you've never written Scala code before

  • you've never worked with Akka

The course is comprehensive, but you'll always see me get straight to the point. So make sure you have a good level of focus and commitment to become a badass programmer.

I believe both theory and practice are important. That's why you'll get lectures with code examples, real life code demos and assignments, plus additional resources, instructions, exercises and solutions.

I've seen that my students are most successful - and my best students work at Google-class companies - when they're guided, but not being told what to do. I have exercises waiting for you, where I offer my (opinionated) guidance but otherwise freedom to experiment and improve upon your code.

Definitely not least, my students are most successful when they have fun along the way!

So join me in this course and let's rock the JVM!
