Microservices can bring many benefits to an organization, but building the capabilities to test, operate and maintain your services can be difficult.
This program will introduce students to advanced testing patterns across the entirety of Akka including Streams and Cluster. Akka is an advanced toolkit that requires hands-on experience to understand how to deploy successfully to production environments. The focus of this program are the real-world production scenarios involved, not only at an implementation-level, but also at an infrastructure-level. Learning how to properly test production-grade Akka systems is a major focus of this program.
This is a 3 day hands-on program with a strong emphasis on participation. Developers will require access to a laptop along with internet connectivity to participate. We will provide all of the required dependencies to follow along with exercises during program delivery.
This an advanced course for experienced Akka practitioners. Participants should understand the fundamentals of Java and Akka and have experience with microservice-based architectures. No previous experience is necessary with all of the features of Akka, but a solid grasp of Akka actors and supervision is required. Previous experience with Kafka is helpful but not required.
This program can be tailored for operational staff who will not be programming with Akka, but must understand the fundemantals of Akka to enable a successful production deployment for their development teams. Please contacts us for more details about this option.
