How does one choose to architect a system that has micro-service/REST api endpoints? While there are many solutions out there, some are better than others. Should state be held in a server side component? Generally we are told this is a bad practice, but is it? Its unclear & this confusion may lead to poor technology stack choices that are impossible or extremely hard to change later on as your system evolves in terms of demand & performance.
In this talk we will discuss how Asynchronous Reactive server side solutions can provide the performance requirements & and the reliability expected by any infrastructure that we expect to be up 100% of the time ( e.g. your telephone ). Using Java one can create restful micro-services with Lagom & Akka Actors deployed on Kubernetes, which will provide an architectural solution that meets these expectations.
Attendees can expect to:* Understand the fundamental of & how to program Lagom Microservices* Explore how Akka Actors work & how to use them to connect with Lagom* Use kubernetes to deploy the above.* Garner insights about the possible pathways to Lightbend & IBM Reactive Platforms
