Apache Camel and Akka
In this video Peter demonstrates how well Camel and Akka work together, showcasing demos with code that's less than a page, but still does powerful stuff, integrating mail, jms, file, akka, twitter, aws and whatnot.

In the end of the presentation Peter talks about a job application he has built that gathers details about new Scala jobs.

Peter is using Camel 2.8, and therefore the integration with twitter and AWS dynamoDB is not yet available. However in Camel 2.10, we have these components out of the box. So Peter can build his application using all out of the box Camel components.
In the end Peter thanks a bunch of people who have helped make this possible. I want to highlight Martin Krasser who is the original author of the akka-camel module. Martin also contributed to the Camel in Action book, where he wrote a piece on his work.
Kudos to Martin, Peter, and the Akka Team.
