Great Akka and Camel presentation video from ScalaDays 2012

ScalaDays 2012 took place recently in London.

I just wanted to highlight the presentation from Peter Gabryanczy - Migrating akka-camel module to Akka 2.x.

In this video Peter demonstrates how well Camel and Akka works together, showcasing demos with code that's less than a page, but still does powerful stuff, integrating mail, jms, file, akka, twitter, aws and whatnot.

The video is available from this link, where the video player is on the top right corner.

In the end of the presentation Peter talks about jobs application he has built that gathers details about new Scala jobs.

Jobs Application using Akka and Camel
Peter is using Camel 2.8, and therefore the integration with twitter and AWS dynamoDB is not yet available. However the Camel team is as usual busy and in the upcoming Camel 2.10, we have these components out of the box. So Peter can build his application using all out of the box Camel components.

In the end Peter thanks a bunch of people who have helped make this possible. I want to highlight Martin Krasser who is the original author of the akka-camel module. Martin also contributed to the Camel in Action book, where he wrote a piece on his work.

Kudos to Martin, Peter, and the Akka Team.

When will the Akka Camel module be available for Akka 2.x?
