Reactive everything, reactive buzzword. Using cutting edge technologies give advantages over traditional technologies. But where is tradeoff? Is it possible to create production application with modern frameworks?

What are Akka HTTP and Alpakka drawbacks? I was given a chance to create such application and I will share my lessons learnt. I will explain and demystify reactive architecture and how Scala ecosystem fits in there. There is no silver bullet and ultimate solution.
