Hello, my name is Tim and this is my technology blog. I’m interested in all kinds of software related things and love to program, optimise and automate things. I like to call myself lazy, because I never want to have to do things twice.
This blog’s main use is for me to not forget things I’ve spend way too much time figuring out and thus functions as a reminder and write down spot. If it is also of use to someone else, that’s a great benefit. Please don’t hesitate to leave a message if you think I’m wrong or right, or if I’m unclear.
The Advanced Akka course is provided by Typesafe and is aimed at teaching advanced usages of Akka. The course covers the basics of Akka, Remoting, Clustering, Routers, CRDTs, Cluster Sharding and Akka Persistance. The following post starts with a general introduction to Akka and presents the takeaways from the course as we experienced them.
