With the advent of "big data", it has become inevitable to process huge volumes of data in real-time to make sense out of it. For this to happen seamlessly, the streaming of that data is necessary. This is where Reactive Streams step in.

Akka Streams is built on top of the Reactive Streams interface. This webinar will be an introduction to Akka Streams and how it simplifies the aspect of back-pressure in real-time streaming.

Here's an outline of the webinar -

  • Introduction to the problem set
  • How do Akka Streams help simplify the problem of back-pressure?
  • Basic terminologies of Akka Streams
  • Live demo of a real-life problem being solved with Akka Streams

Time: 11:00 PM IST / 1:30 P.M EDT
