Akka is a toolkit for building concurrent, distributed, message-driven applications on the JVM. Akka provides an implementation of the actor model of concurrency, which simplifies concurrency by adding a lighter weight abstraction than threads and thread pools.
Konrad Malawski joins the show today to discuss Akka and reactive streams. Reactive streams is an initiative to provide a standard for asynchronous stream processing. This show goes deep into modern concurrent programming and is a great companion to some of the shows we have done about reactive programming.
