Duncan DeVore Lessons Learned in Deploying Akka Persistence

Viridity Energy’s energy optimization solutions are helping energy consumers take control of their energy spend. Viridity Energy provides energy consumers with predictive optimization software that optimizes energy consumption assets with both energy market products and existing supply-side commitments. This session will focus on the tenets and tools for building a Reactive application with simple real-world examples of how we tuned Akka Persistence to collect massive amounts of data.  10:00AM Pacific, July 23, 2014

Monitoring Akka @ Scala Days.Here...

16th-18th June 2014

Jan will show how the Reactive Monitor helped a major financial services organisation to provide monitoring of their Akka system. The talk will explore the challenges of monitoring mission-critical systems, especially under heavy load. Jan will show the implementation details of the Reactive Monitor, pointing out the benefits of the Akka IO layer to implement non-blocking and resilient transport layer. The talk will close by going back to the large-scale system and show how we used the information from the monitoring to tune the Akka system.

Introduction to Reactive Streams @ Manchester Lambda Lounge.

19th May 2014

Jan will explore how Reactive Streams address the challenges of systems that process flows of live data. Learn about the core principles (asynchrony & non-blocking, stream passing over asynchronous boundaries, back pressure) without worrying about any particular language or framework. For clarity & brevity, Jan will be using Akka Streams implementation of Reactive Streams in the code samples. You will not need any extensive Scala or Akka experience to understand the core principles. Basic knowledge of Scala and Akka will help you understand the code portion of the talk, though the Akka Streams DSL is undestandable to even non-Scala folk.

Reactive APIs With Spray @ Philly ETE

24th April 2014.

Jan will show how the principles of reactive design apply to APIs. In particular, Jan will show how to serve & consume REST APIs using Scala and Spray. The talk will explain the components in Spray, how they build on each other to offer convenient abstractions, and how you can easily combine the different abstraction levels in your code. Jan will show how Spray makes the implementation of even complex APIs easy and understandable. You do not need thorough understanding of Scala or the actor model (though knowledge of the Scala’s syntax will help). After the talk, you will understand the principles in Spray and how to apply them in your applications.
