    Jonas Bonér, CTO of LightBend and creator Akka, discusses using Akka when developing distributed systems. He talks about the Actor Model, and how every Microservice needs to be viewed as a system to be successful. Why listen to this podcast: - Akka is JVM-based framework design for developing distributed systems leveraging the Actor Model - an approach for writing concurrent systems that treat actors as universal primitives and the most successful model with abstraction has been streaming - Circuit breakers in Akka are a backup and retry policy; they protect you by capturing failure data and allow you to roll back - Every Microservice needs to be viewed as a system, it needs to have multiple parts that run on different machines in order to function and be fully resilient - thus is a Microsystem - Two different trends have emerged when it comes to hardware and environments: one is the trend toward Multi-core, the is a movement toward virtualized environments and the cloud - Saga pattern of managing long running transactions in a distributed system fits very well with messaging style architectures Notes and links can be found on: Akka The Actor Model When Akka and the Actor Model is the perfect choice Circuit breakers patterns in distributed systems Two trends toward Multi-core Reactive Manifesto Event Driven vs. Message Driven Reactive Programming and Streams Microliths to Microsystems What do you have to get right before you start trying to deploy a distributed systems?
