Where did my controllers, services and repositories go?--Learn about Akka and Scala from a seasoned Spring developer's point of view. Discover how to design and implement Akka applications using typical Spring terminology.
Jan's Akka eye for the Spring guy (or gal) is the live & human-delivered version of the favourite blog post (at http://www.cakesolutions.net/teamblogs/2012/06/18/akka-eye-for-the-spring-guy-or-gal/): Jan will show how the typical Spring application components translate to similar Akka components. The talk will not only show how to "translate" the code, but most importantly, how to take advantage of all the new features of Akka & Spray applications in Scala. Throughout the talk, there will be plenty of code examples, no bullet points and plenty of inspiration.
Jan will show how to make most of your Spring expertise and how to take it up a notch and build asynchronous and scalable applications.
