Essential Akka (Scala / Java)

Akka provides a toolkit for building highly concurrent, distributed, and resilient message-driven applications for Java and Scala.

In this course you will learn how to use Akka in Java to create highly concurrent applications that are capable of improved scalability within a single JVM. These applications can have increased resiliency through the use of supervision hierarchies.
