Writing truly concurrent software on the Java Virtual Machine just got a whole lot easier. The Akka Toolkit takes the sting out of coding for multiple cores, multiple processors, and even multiple machines.

Akka Concurrency will show you what it means to design and write software in the paradigm of Akka. You'll learn how to think about your software in new and exciting ways that will allow you to express your designs naturally, allowing you to focus on the business of your software more than on the concurrency of it. This book picks up where the Akka documentation leaves off, exploring the how and the why of Akka, in a way that will empower you to grow your applications to new levels of scalability, responsiveness, and performance.

Awesome. The sample chapter is great and has the best explanation of Actors I've come across so far.
Just bought the ebook. Looking forward to reading it.

Yes, mobi and epub come out when the book is finished, and you can download whichever form you prefer (or all of them if you prefer) if you purchase the PDF eBook.

I'm reading the PDF now, and it's great so far. I just a minor glitches - mismatches between example code and the explanation on p169 - what's the best way to report this?

The best way is to use the "Suggest" link you can find at the bottom of each page of the PDF.

Is there a recommended place to provide feedback? I'm trying the examples with Akka 2.1 RC2 and Scala 2.10 RC2 and I've found a minor change.

Hi,

Are the code examples in this book in Scala, Java, or both? Thanks.

Mostly Scala, but there's a chapter "Using Akka from Java".
