Course Overview


Embrace yourself to learn the art of creating applications and microservices with Akka. If you're looking at building distributed, concurrent, fault-tolerant and scalable applications with ease, Akka is the go-to tool for it.

Akka written in Scala, helps you build distributed systems that provides outstanding performance on local machines as well as over remote networks.

Akka - Building Applications and Microservices with Akka is Packt's Video Learning Path that is a series of individual video products put together in a logical and stepwise manner such that each video builds on the skills learned in the video before it.

This Learning Path delivers a clear and practical introduction to the Akka toolkit, explaining the key components you need to know to get up and running with developing applications of your own. You will learn about the actor system, how to create hierarchical structures in Akka, and how to make routes in order to send messages to other actors. We will look at other use cases such as building an actor that can change its behavior during runtime. You will then create stateful actors, work with a cluster system, and work with remote actors.

Then, this Learning Path will make you understand how to build Reactive microservices using Akka and Akka HTTP, which adhere to the principles underlying the Reactive Manifesto. You will delve deeper into concepts such as Responsive, Resilient, Elastic, and Message-Driven and will see how microservices should be designed to adhere to those principles. By the end of this Path, you'll be well-versed in creating applications and microservices.

The goal of this course is to make you efficient at building applications and microservices with Akka.

Basic knowledge:

  • Knowledge of Java and Scala

Who should take this course

This Learning Path is for Java developers and DevOps engineers looking to upgrade their Java and microservice skills. The audience should also know Scala or be proficient in a recognized programming language such as Java, C#, Ruby, and so on, with some exposure to Scala. Some experience with writing web services would be ideal but is not mandatory. This last part of this Learning Path is targeted at Big Data developers and engineers who are working with and analyzing data in clusters and working with raw structured and unstructured datasets. It will appeal to data analysts who are working with Hadoop clusters and AKKA.
