Composable Futures with Akka 2.0


About This Session

Writing concurrent programs that can run in multiple threads and on multiple cores is crucial but daunting. Composable futures provide a convenient abstraction for many problem domains, and powers Twitter's central processing. The author's new book "Composable Futures with Akka 2.0 for Java and Scala" discusses today's concurrency options, and focuses on Akka futures and the parts of java.util.concurrent that underlie the Akka futures implementation. Unlike Java's futures, Akka futures support transformations and sophisticated callbacks. The presentation will be based on selected material from the book. Code examples will be shown demonstrated and explained. For more information on the book, please visit http://slinnbooks.com/books/futures/
