Akka Streams: Streaming Data Transformation à la Carte



Viktor Klang explores fast data streaming using Akka Streams - how to design robust transformation pipelines with built-in flow control able to take advantage of multicore and go over networks. He discusses the traditional pitfalls and how they can be overcome, as well as how we can build reusable pieces of pipeline logic that can reuse a smorgasbord of transformations.


Viktor Klang is the Deputy CTO at Typesafe, a prolific contributor to the Akka project as well as member of the Reactive Streams SIG when not involved in the Scala Standard Library concurrency APIs. Interested in all things distributed and concurrent, software as hardware.
