With the emergence of big data and event-driven architecture, it became a necessity to quickly process a vast amount of events and act upon them as quick as possible.

But how to do that in a scalable way and ensure that the whole system doesn't crumble under a high pressure ?  

In this talk, I'll speak about the building blocks to achieve that with principles drawn from reactive programming.

I'll walk you through an implementation that leverages the power of Apache Kafka messaging broker and Akka Streams streaming processor using Scala programming language.
