Akka Essentials with Scala | Rock the JVM

via Udemy


Learn the Akka actor model with Scala and write parallel, concurrent and fault-tolerant systems

What you'll learn:
  • create concurrent applications with actors instead of threads and locks
  • design fault-tolerant systems with supervision
  • configure Akka for various scenarios
  • confidently test actor systems
  • use Akka patterns and best practices

In this course, wewill learn how to write concurrent and resilient applications using Akka actors.You'll write 2000+lines of Akka codeyourself, with guidance,and you will become a rockstar.

This course is for Scala programmers who need to designcomplex and scalable concurrent applications.


  • it speeds up the development of concurrent applications by as much as 10x

  • its demand has exploded

  • it's a highly marketable skill

  • it'sincredibly fun- once tasted Akka, you'll never want to get back to threads

I like to get to the point and get things done.This course

  1. deconstructsall conceptsinto the critical pieces you need

  2. selectsthe most important ideasand separates them into what's simple butcritical and what's powerful

  3. sequencesideas in a way that "clicks" and makes sense throughout the process of learning

  4. applieseverythingin live code

The end benefits are still much greater:

  • a completely new mental model around parallel applications

  • significantly more marketable resume

  • more enjoyable work- Akka is fun!

This course is forestablished programmerswith experience with Scalaandwith functional programming at the level of the Rock the JVM Scala beginners course. I already assume a solid understanding of general programming fundamentals.

This course is NOT for you if

  • you've never written Scala code before

  • you've never worked with threads

The course is comprehensive, butyou'll always see me get straight to the point. So make sure you have a good level of focus and commitment to become a badass programmer.

Ibelieve both theoryandpractice are important. That's why you'll get lectures with code examples, real life code demos and assignments, plus additional resources, instructions, exercises and solutions. At the end of the course, you'll have written thousands of lines of Akka.

I've seen that my students are most successful - and my best students work at Google-class companies -when they're guided, but not being told what to do. I have exercises waiting for you, where I offer my (opinionated)guidance but otherwisefreedom to experiment and improve upon your code.

Definitely not least, my students are most successful when they have fun along the way!

So join me in this course and let's rock the JVM!
