Fast responses are not fast enough when it comes to internet scale cloud solutions. Organizations building distributed systems with demanding requirements encounter challenges that cannot fully be solved with a traditional object-oriented programming (OOP) model. To take care of scale, systems are becoming more & more distributed to address elastic scale, but often at the expense of reliability & responsiveness. These are hard to build & choosing the right framework can be hard.

In this talk we will discuss how the Akka Actor framework from Lightbend is a great alternative for concurrency to facilitate Asynchronous Reactive server side solutions which can provide the performance requirements & and the reliability expected today. We will talk about how Java one can create restful micro-services with Akka Actors deployed on RedHat OpenShift, which will provide an architectural solution that meets these expectations. Today, the actor model is not only recognized as a highly effective solution it has been proven in production for some of the worlds most demanding applications.

Attendees can expect to walk away understanding:

- The fundamentals of & how to program Reactive Microservices
- How Akka Actors work
- How RedHat Openshift can be used to deploy Reactive Systems
