  • Custom Server Monitoring Tool

    An app to monitor servers, written with pure Scala and Akka actors. I did all the process from gathering the requirements by finding the best tool for the task of developing and deploying it. The app is easy to install and configure, the configuration can be changed dynamically, information is displayed with easy to read charts and alarms can be set for custom thresholds.

  • Akka-typed Research

    After taking an online course on reactive programming with Scala and Akka, I decided to investigate deeper into Akka-typed, so I created a pet project to try and see how far I could go in defining a compiler-checked protocol. The result was very interesting and the process quite fun.
