Akka Classic Essentials
Use actors to think distributed systems differently. Uses Akka Classic actors.
The classic Akka actors course is still live.
Akka is one of the most powerful toolkits in the Scala ecosystem. Mimicking human interaction with the actor model revolutionized the way we build and think parallel and distributed applications.
Although we have a completely revamped course with the latest Akka Typed version, This course will still be alive on Rock the JVM for as long as people continue to use Akka Classic.
This course is 100% compatible with the latest fully supported Akka Classic (which at the time of writing is 2.6.x) and gives you the same benefits:
- Timeless skills with actors
- Actor interaction patterns
- Testing actors
- Fault tolerance
- Advanced patterns
and gives you the same perks:
- Full code I write on camera (2000+ LOC)
- Exclusive access our private Slack group
- Takeaway slides
- All updates free
- Never expires

I'm a software engineer and the founder of Rock the JVM. I started the Rock the JVM project out of love for Scala and the technologies it powers - they are all amazing tools and I want to share as much of my experience with them as I can.
As of June 2021, I've taught Java, Scala and related tech (e.g. Akka, Cats, Spark) to 41000+ students at various levels and I've held live trainings for some of the best companies in the industry, including Adobe and Apple. I've also taught university students who now work at Google and Facebook (among others), I've held Hour of Code for 7-year-olds and I've taught more than 20000 kids to code.
I have a Master's Degree in Computer Science and I wrote my Bachelor and Master theses on Quantum Computation. Before starting to learn programming, I won medals at international Physics competitions.
