Konrad is a late-night passionate dev living by the motto "Life is Study!" working full-time on the Akka toolkit.
His favourite discussion topics range from distributed systems to capybaras. He's a very active member of the polish IT community, co-leading or founding multiple technology user groups in Kraków. Over the last years he's been presenting at conferences such as: JavaOne SF, JFokus or Devoxx.
In those rare times he's not coding, he spreads the joy of computer science, through helping local user groups and whitepaper reading clubs.
Event sourcing and Domain Driven Design are techniques that allow you to model your business more truthfully - by expressing it via commands, events and aggregates etc. The new akka-persistence module, included in Akka since the 2.3 release is aimed at easing implementing event sourced applications. Turns out the actor model and events as messages fit in here perfectly. During this session we'll discover how to build reactive, event sourcing based apps using the new abstractions provided, and investigate how to implement your own journals to back these persistent event sourced actors.
