Testing microservices built with Akka HTTP and Akka actors

Many teams choose Akka HTTP in combination with Akka actors to write services but, while Akka is a very powerful technology, it is very easy to introduce bugs if you’re not testing it thoroughly. In this presentation I am going to show you how to build a simple microservice with Akka HTTP and Akka and explore different aspects of testing it: actor level unit testing, route testing, API level testing, with lots of code examples.

By the end of this talk, you should have a good idea about how to write such a microservice and validate it with a solid test-suite from day one.
