Introduction to Akka with Java

The Introduction to Akka with Java training course examines how to build Akka based applications using Java as the primary programming language.

The Introduction to Akka with Java course beings with a quick review of the history of Akka and the problems it solves in building highly-distributed, concurrent applications. It then transitions into an examination of key concepts and terminologies. With the foundation laid, the course then moves into an examination of how to leverage Akka through Actors, dispatchers, routers, state machines, etc.

The Introduction to Akka with Java concludes with an discussion about using Akka in clusters and how to effectively test Akka applications.
