Be Reactive

I’m not sure which one was the first when I met this reactive idea. Maybe Odersky’s Principles of Reactive Programming was that. It’s a really great but not too easy Coursera session with Scala, of course. And there is the core, The reactive manifesto. You can signed it if agree with this. Yes, I signed it.

It’s all about the standard vertical and horizontal scaling stuff. The main idea contains 4 points:

  1. react to events (Event driven programming)
  2. react to load (scalability)
  3. react to failure (resilient systems)
  4. react to users (responsive)

Best implementation of Reactive manifesto is Akka toolkit.

Be Reactive.

Scala Meetup: an open source event analytics platform

It was a crackin’ meetup. Alex Dean talked about an open source event analytics platform. It’s built on Scalding as a MapReducer with Scalaz, Spray and ScalaCheck. These are the main scala technologies in the project. Alex talked about the business model. So it’s an open source project and as usual there is a business support on the Snosplow’s side.

There is the GitHub page: https://github.com/snowplow/snowplow

I have to paste the scalding’s logo, because that’s really cool:

All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace

As a well mannered computer person I enjoy every documentary movies about computer science. I’ve seen this BBC mini series called All Watched Over by Machines of Loving Grace this weekend. Huge amount of economics and philosophy mixing with dusty computers. We are just part of the whole system, we know that since Matrix.
