In this course, wewill learn how to write reactive microservices, backends and RESTAPIs using the powerful Akka HTTP. You’ll write 2000+lines of Akka codeyourself, with guidance, and you will become a rockstar. This course is for Scala/Akka programmers who need to designlarge-scale reactive HTTPbackends and microservices. You probably knowAkka already: it speeds up the development of concurrent applications by as much as 10xits demand has explodedit’s a highly marketable skillit’sincredibly fun- power in your hands!I like to get to the point and get things done. This course deconstructsall conceptsinto the critical pieces you needselectsthe most important ideasand separates them into what’s simple butcritical and what’s powerfulsequencesideas in a way that “clicks” and makes sense throughout the process of learningapplieseverythingin live codeThe end benefits are still much greater:a completely new mental model around stream-based microservicesa more marketable resumemore enjoyable work- Akka is fun! This course is forestablished programmerswith experience with Scala and Akka (including Akka Streams) at the level of the Rock the JVM courses. I already assume a solid understanding of general programming fundamentals. This course is NOT for you ifyou’ve never written Scala code beforeyou’ve never worked with AkkaThe 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.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!
