After the late-ending Community Keynote, I headed to Hilton Golden Gate 3/4/5 to see Viktor Klang's (Typesafe) "Up, Up and Out: Akka" presentation. Klang is the technical lead on Akka. Akka is a "beautiful mountain in northern Sweden," is a Goddess, and is a Scala-based "toolkit and runtime for building highly concurrent, distributed, and fault tolerant event-driven applications on the JVM." Akka is not exclusive to Scala only and can be used "from Java today." Using Akka with Scala does allow you to do some things you cannot do with Akka when used with Java.
