Show Off. Get Proof. Convince Your Boss. And Go Typesafe!
Now a days, before building a new application we think about following points which our application should adhere:
scalability, productivity, quality, responsiveness, less creation time and use of latest technologies. To achieve this, just go through Go Typesafe
 once. You will get solution for all your problems.
Go Typesafe is a community curated set of resources focused on supporting internal development leaders and advocates for innovation. The tool helps you demonstrate how the Typesafe Reactive Platform (Play Framework, Akka and Scala) solves key challenges by building quick sample app demos, provides proof of value with third-party data and case studies, and helps guide how to successfully adopt it from a business perspective
Using Akka to Scale Gilt's Massive Push Notification System
Gilt hosted the New York Mobile App Developer (NYMAD) meetup’s March event on March 18.2014. In this event, they described their team’s work building a distributed architecture built with Scala, Akka, ZooKeeper, and other technologies. They explained how Akka’s clustering capabilities not only make mass messaging possible (3-million-messages-in-less-than-60-seconds), but also promote overall system integrity, scalability, and better performance (and, on the business side of things, higher revenues!). He also placed push notifications in the context of Gilt’s general engineering culture, which emphasizes a micro-services architecture, fault tolerance, and (the good kind of) redundancy.
Now a days, Akka is getting more popularity because of its fault tolerance capability and concurrency feature. Many companies are considering Akka as a prefered choice
The Reactive Manifesto in Financial Markets
In this article, Mike O’Hara, in conversation with Jonas Bonér, Greg Young, Martin Thompson and Jan Macháček – investigates the core principles behind the recently published The Reactive Manifesto, and its relevance to system design in today’s Financial Markets. The basic features of Reactive applications are scalable, event-driven, resilient and responsive. By using Reactive Manifesto, applications will be able to rapidly react to events, react to load, react to errors or failures, and react to users.
Still Finding A Reason To Go With Scala, Play, Akka ?
Now a days, people are moving towards reactive applications. These applications are able to rapidly react to events, react to load, react to errors or failures, and react to users. Reactive products can easily be built with Play, Akka and Scala. If you are still not convinced then talk to Knoldus. If you are convinced then definitely talk to Knoldus. We will give you the reason for using this and benefits of this. We can also help you to build a quality reactive product with the help of an agile team which has successfully delivered more than 20 reactive products. 
Training Session For Fast Track to Akka with Scala
BoldRadius offers the official Typesafe Scala, Akka and Play trainings for developers, systems administrators, and technical managers. They are offering training for Fast Tract To Akka With Scala from April 7,2014 to April 8,2014. 
This two-day course introduces experienced application developers to the reactive Akka toolkit and runtime and the methodologies that enable the creation of real-world actor-based systems in Scala on a single JVM. This course has extensive hands-on work and successive exercises build upon prior lessons learned to produce a fully functional application that is both event-driven and resilient by the conclusion of the course.
Programming Scala, 2nd Edition
Dean Wampler & Alex Payne published 1st edition of Programming Scala in 2009. It was a nice to read for new comers with good hands on examples. Now they have come up with 2nd Edition which gets experienced developers up to speed on one of today's most exciting languages. Scala offers all the benefits of a modern object model, functional programming, and an advanced type system. Packed with code examples, this comprehensive book teaches programmers how to be productive with Scala quickly, and explains what makes this language ideal for today's highly scalable, component-based applications that support concurrency and distribution.
Developing an Akka Edge
This book was written to act as a tour guide for newcomers to Akka. The goal is that, by the time you've finished reading this, you're able to navigate your way around Akka without feeling like you've plunged in at the deep end.
This book focusing solely on Akka's Scala API. If you are coming from a background in an object-oriented language such as Java, C#, or Ruby, you should be able to work through a couple of short tutorials on Scala and gain enough understanding to follow along. None of the features described in this book, require understanding of the deeper details of Scala, so a basic reading-level familiarity should be sufficient.
