Stateful Architectures in Akka


Stateless architectures are all the rage right now, but is that a good thing? Stateful architectures in general are just starting to take off, and here at VictrorOps, we’ve been using Akka to build several stateful projects and we’ve learned a lot along the way. This presentations will introduce the concept of stateful architectures using Akka and how to start building application using this stateful paradigm.

In this presentation, I will be comparing and contrasting stateful and stateless architectures. This talk is meant for beginners and some key takeaways include:
 - stateful architecture and performance
 - stateful architecture and resiliency 
 - difficulties and challenges
 - benefits
 - lessons learned
 - Akka, obviously
 - HTTP services
