Coursera Case Study: Accessible Online Education with Typesafe

A big thanks to the folks at Coursera for telling their success story in our newest case study, "Making online education accessible with Typesafe." Coursera's popular online education service delivers high quality classes directly to users desktops, and turned the company into an overnight success. Delivering any service in a scalable, seamless manner however, is hard to do without the right tools. Coursera decided to utilize the Typesafe Reactive Platform to handle the massive scale and concurrency issues they faced. 

Read the case study to learn how Brennan Saeta, software engineer at Coursera, helped introduce the Play Framework and Scala into the organization, and carved a path so that all new services in Coursera’s service-oriented architecture are written on the Typesafe Reactive Platform as a result.
