At Scale by the Bay, Gabriel showed us how Swimming in the Stream is something we should all be interested in!
Swimming in the stream
Streams! Streams offer an interesting conceptual model to processing pipelines that is very functional programming oriented. The streaming paradigm is very well suited to deal with a constant flow of data and Akka streams is a powerful implementation of it. It offers a set of composable building blocks for creating asynchronous and scalable data streaming applications. In this talk, we will live code from a very basic stream to a data aggregation pipeline that interacts with multiple services.
