The Actor Model programming paradigm for building highly concurrent systems was defined back in the seventies. Nowadays we see that this paradigm is used more and more in web-scale scenarios. In this session I introduce and demonstrate the Akka.NET framework for building Actor Model systems.
In this session I focus on Akka.NET, a modern open-source framework that can be used to build highly concurrent systems based on the Actor Model programming paradigm. I introduce the Actor Model concepts, followed by an overview of the Akka.NET framework. Finally I walk you through the code of a sample application built using Akka.NET.
