Learner Reviews & Feedback for Programming Reactive Systems by École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne

About the Course

Reactive programming is a set of techniques for implementing scalable, resilient and responsive systems as per the Reactive Manifesto. Such systems are based on asynchronous message-passing, and their basic building-blocks are event handlers. This course teaches how to implement reactive systems in Scala and Akka by using high-level abstractions, such as actors, asynchronous computations, and reactive streams. You will learn how to: - use, transform and sequence asynchronous computations using Future values - write concurrent reactive systems based on Actors and message passing, using untyped Akka and Akka Typed - design systems resilient to failures - implement systems that can scale out according to a varying workload - transform and consume infinite and intermittent streams of data with Akka Stream in a non-blocking way - understand how back-pressure controls flows of data...

Great assignments, sleep inducing lectures

V​ery interesting concepts. Good slides, presentation, and examples. The practice exercises can be demanding. Indeed, the akka API is quite sophisticated and powerful it thus requires time and patience to understand. I am wondering how widespread their use is and how easy it is to onboard engineers in concrete projects using akka actors & streams.
