Akka and Kubernetes: Reactive from Code to Cloud
An Akka and a Kubernetes expert walk into a bar. They order drinks and try to figure out what is better for building distributed applications. Does Akka Cluster have a place in the age of Kubernetes? Does Kubernetes bring any value to those who are building applications using Akka? Akka Cluster is a mature choice to achieve full elasticity for your distributed JVM services. The Kubernetes orchestrator offers a growing set of features - think resilience or custom scaling metrics - that ultimately overlap with Akka's. This talk explores integration patterns between the two. Friends or foes?
