Finagle is an RPC library for JVM that allows you to develop service-based applications in a protocol-agnostic way. Formally, the Finagle library provides both asynchronous runtime via futures and protocol-independence via codecs. In this post I will try to build a Finagle-powered distributed Fibonacci Numbers calculator that scales up to thousands of nodes.
This is my first post on this blog. Needless to say, I’m really excited about this. This is my first attempt in writing blog posts in English. I was previously posting in Russian at LJ and Tumbler, but it wasn’t about technical things. Here, I will try to post only about CS. I have huge plans on posting about Scala and it’s application for research of purely functional data structures. I should probably post about algorithms and data structures that I’ve already implemented in Scalacaster. There are loads of awesome pieces of Scala code that I want to tell about. One of my favorites - QuickSelect in a purely functional setting.
