About This Course

Lightbend Academy contains courses to help guide you on your path to building Reactive systems. This course will help you navigate through various paths, depending on what technologies you have chosen to build your system.

In this course we will present you with a series of "Training Paths". These will lay out a series of courses in the order we recommend for a beginner to take them. More advanced users may wish to deviate from the prescribed path, skipping courses, or taking them out of order. Think of these Training Paths as guides, rather than strict rules.
