12 Tips for Enterprise Adoption of Typesafe Reactive Platform with Play, Akka, sbt, Scala and Java

In April, 2013, we published a blog post about Enterprise Scala Adoption Tips, but the time has come for an update. Not only that, we need to focus on how to help enterprise organizations adopt Scala and also the Typesafe Reactive Platform in general. Many enterprises make the decision to leverage Akka and Play Framework from the Java API, which we fully support.

As more enterprise organizations adopt Scala/Akka/Play, we find it important to help them engage the community effectively. This involves providing them with information about where they can find resources to empower their developers to learn as much about these technologies as possible, as well as to directly engage with the community on a daily basis. By following these steps, the likelihood of successfully adopting these technologies is much higher.

Go Reactive with Java 8

We are very excited about the release of Java 8!  The new Lambda syntax makes it much easier for Java developers to go Reactive. The foundation of Reactive is Event-Driven. To be Event Driven you need an easy way to create and spawn up small independent tasks in an asynchronous fashion. Lambdas gives us exactly this, avoiding the usual anonymous inner classes that make code hard to comprehend. Combining Lambdas with Akka and Play Framework create a concise and cohesive programming model for Reactive applications on the JVM.
