Being a software engineer often means constantly learning something new: a new framework, a new language or simply a new best practice. Learning makes our life more interesting. We at JetBrains try to not only provide the most capable and ergonomic IDE (which of course is our top priority) but also help you learn and grow as professionals. That’s why we blog about the latest news around the JVM community and do webinars on software-related topics that seem interesting to us.
Today, we’d like to invite you September 13 to a live webinar, this time about Akka and Java 8.
One of the really good abstractions Akka brings to the table is Actors, which allows you to write concurrent code but without much of the pain doing so compared to writing your code using threads and locks.
In this webinar, we will take a look at the basics of writing actors with Akka in Java 8, what actors and the core concepts around them are, how you write one, what to do and what not to do when using Akka.
