The book gives readers a practical introduction to reactive programming with Actor Model. The reader is given a brief but detailed background on using the Scala programming language and how to program using Scala and the Akka toolkit. After covering the basics and establishing a foundation, the book takes readers through a series of message-based integration cookbook solutions, including: Messaging Systems, Messaging Channels, Message Construction, Message Routing, Message Transportation, Message Endpoints, and System Management. The book follows the proven method presented in ´´Enterprise Integration Patterns´´ by Gregor Hohpe and Bobby Woolf, but gives solutions based on the use of Scala and Akka.
Programming Theater History:The Actor´s Workshop of San Francisco Herbert Blau
This book covers two main topics: First, novel fast and flexible simulation techniques for modern heterogeneous NoC-based multi-core architectures. These are implemented in the full-system simulator called InvadeSIM and designed to study the dynamic behavior of hundreds of parallel application programs running on such architectures while competing for resources. Second, a novel actor-oriented programming library called ActorX10, which allows to formally model parallel streaming applications by actor graphs and to analyze predictable execution behavior as part of so-called hybrid mapping approaches, which are used to guarantee real-time requirements of such applications at design time independent from dynamic workloads by a combination of static analysis and dynamic embedding.
Your software needs to leverage multiple cores, handle thousands of users and terabytes of data, and continue working in the face of both hardware and software failure. Concurrency and parallelism are the keys, and Seven Concurrency Models in Seven Weeks equips you for this new world. See how emerging technologies such as actors and functional programming address issues with traditional threads and locks development. Learn how to exploit the parallelism in your computer´s GPU and leverage clusters of machines with MapReduce and Stream Processing. And do it all with the confidence that comes from using tools that help you write crystal clear, high-quality code.
Akka in Action is a comprehensive tutorial on building message-oriented systems using Akka. The audiobook takes a hands-on approach, where each new concept is followed by an example that shows you how it works, how to implement the code, and how to (unit) test it. Akka makes it relatively easy to build applications in the cloud or on devices with many cores that efficiently use the full capacity of the computing power available. It´s a toolkit that provides an actor programming model, a runtime, and required support tools for building scalable applications. Akka in Action shows you how to build message-oriented systems with Akka. This comprehensive, hands-on tutorial introduces each concept with a working example. You´ll start with the big picture of how Akka works and then quickly build and deploy a fully functional REST service out of actors. You´ll explore test-driven development and deploying and scaling fault-tolerant systems. After mastering the basics, you´ll discover how to model immutable messages, implement domain models, and apply techniques like event sourcing and CQRS. You´ll also find a tutorial on building streaming applications using akka-stream and akka-http. Finally, you´ll get practical advice on how to customize and extend your Akka system. What´s inside:Getting concurrency right Testing and performance tuning Clustered and cloud-based applications Covers Akka version 2.4 This audiobook assumes you´re comfortable with Java and Scala. No prior experience with Akka required. A software craftsman and architect, Raymond Roestenburg is an Akka committer. Rob Bakker specializes in concurrent back-end systems and systems integration. Rob Williams has more than 20 years of product-development experience.PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along wi 1.

It´s the summer of 1942 at radio station WHAR on the New Jersey coast. As bombs fall on Britain, a troupe of gallant actors, sound effects people, writers, and producers explores the promise of this exhilarating medium, struggling to create programming that entertains, informs, and enlightens its listeners. Into this intense community come Jack Dulaney and Holly Carnahan, determined to find Holly´s missing father, who sent his last desperate missive from this noisy seaside town. Holly sings like an angel and quickly becomes a star. Jack - a onetime novelist who´s hit every kind of trouble - gets hooked by the extraordinary power of radio and discovers that he can write scripts with the best of them. Holly´s father is nowhere to be found, and soon it seems that his disappearance may be linked to an English actor who walked out of the station six years earlier and was never seen again. It is a link that some people will do anything to hide - including murder. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Boyd Gaines.

Save time and trouble when using Scala to build object-oriented, functional, and concurrent applications. With more than 250 ready-to-use recipes and 700 code examples, this comprehensive cookbook covers the most common problems you?ll encounter when using the Scala language, libraries, and tools. It?s ideal not only for experienced Scala developers, but also for programmers learning to use this JVM language. Author Alvin Alexander (creator of DevDaily.com) provides solutions based on his experience using Scala for highly scalable, component-based applications that support concurrency and distribution. Packed with real-world scenarios, this book provides recipes for: * Strings, numeric types, and control structures * Classes, methods, objects, traits, and packaging * Functional programming in a variety of situations * Collections covering Scala´s wealth of classes and methods * Concurrency, using the Akka Actors library * Using the Scala REPL and the Simple Build Tool (SBT) * Web services on both the client and server sides * Interacting with SQL and NoSQL databases * Best practices in Scala development
