Software is going Reactive because users demand real-time engagement. New ways to store and interact with data, like Big Data and NoSQL, now require new programming models to instantly deliver data to end users. Rich clients like HTML5 and mobile apps have opened new doors for real-time interaction.
The Typesafe Platform is the world's first Reactive Platform consisting of Play Framework for the web framework, Akka for the managing concurrency, and Scala a hybrid Object Oriented and Functional programming language.
This session will teach attendees about how to build Reactive applications with Play Framework, Akka, and Scala. Attendees will learn:
- How to create asynchronous and non-blocking web applications
- The Actor model for managing concurrency
- Functional paradigms that provide the foundation for Reactive programming
