External video: This series of videos introduces developers and architects working with Java (and Scala) to the inner workings of Akka Cluster. The dashboard in the sample project visualizes a running Akka Cluster that you can use to watch the behavior of nodes in the cluster in real time. Watch...
External blog article: This four part series of articles describes how to build a stateful Microservice (PoC) with Akka Cluster Sharding. It will walk you through the source code of the example and how to: run locally load test and get insights with Lightbend Telemetry deploy in Docker deploy in...
External presentation and blog article: The Tesla Virtual Power Plant (VPP) is a modern example of a cloud-native architecture that leverages edge computing. Built to the demands of the ever-changing energy market, the system shows how a reactive architecture with edge telemetry and command/control of edge devices enables a platform...
External blog article: A deep dive into how Lightbend contributed flow control optimizations in Apache Kafka 2.4 improves performance in Alpakka Kafka 2.0.0. Read the whole article at: https://www.lightbend.com/blog/alpakka-kafka-flow-control-optimizations
External blog article: Instead of focusing on failure as something to be eliminated, we need a run-time that is complimentary and embraces failure as part of the system. Read the whole article at: https://blog.colinbreck.com/on-embracing-error-in-distributed-software-systems/
External blog article: The Alpakka Cassandra connector allows us to read and write data from/to Cassandra tables. Using Alpakka CassandraSource we can read the data from Cassandra tables and similarly we can use CassandraFlow or CassandraSink. See the full article at: https://blog.knoldus.com/streaming-data-from-cassandra-using-alpakka/
External blog article series: In this series we are going to explore Akka Typed, the new Akka Actor API that brings significant advantage over the classic one. If you’re not familiar with the Akka Actor API, don’t worry — this series is intended to be understandable even if you do...
External presentation: An alpaca is like a camel, but is Alpakka like Apache Camel? Can we use the reactive approach in the area of integration as well, instead of the blocking approach that Camel usually offers? In this live coding session we’re going to explore the possibilities that Alpakka -...
External blog article series: It is natural to adopt the Akka Streams API for inherently streaming workloads. However, the Akka Streams API is much more broadly applicable and it can be used to address many problems that you may not initially think of as streaming problems. Read the whole article...
External blog article: One of the most fundamental things when designing a stream is error handling and there are multiple ways to approach it in Akka Streams. Now, having all of this in mind, let’s see how to iteratively tackle this problem in a real-world example. Read the whole article...
External blog article series: Building distributed systems is hard. Pesky things like the laws of physics get in the way of maintaining state accross geographically (and chronologically) disparate systems, and, if that weren’t already outrageous enough in itself, those systems may be subject to network failures, forcing us to think...
External blog article: After realizing the power of the Akka Streams API, people are often confused as to how it relates to Akka Actors. Some people question if actors are even necessary. Actors are definitely necessary. Actors solve complimentary problems. Read the whole article series at: https://blog.colinbreck.com/integrating-akka-streams-and-akka-actors-part-i/
