In this presentation which is a part of our ongoing knolX session, i talked about  Akka Futures, how to compose them using  for comprehensions. Since Future is a monad,  I also illustrated how to apply methods like map, flatmap  on it  to manipulate result of the future to pass  its result to other futures.

Akka Futures can be used to run code in parallel, so we are not required to use actors.

I also illustrated Akka Remoting and how to create remote actors running on remote node and how to lookup for them.
