Building Actor Model systems using Akka.NET

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.
