VIDEOS

CQRS with Scala, Akka, and Cassandra

In this video, we'll implement a bigger Scala application using Akka Actors (Typed), Akka Persistence, Akka HTTP, some Cats, and Cassandra as a persistent store. We're going to make a mini-bank, which will expose a few REST endpoints, with data validation based on the Cats library to make it a bit more robust.
