Exploring the Actor Model for Concurrent Systems using Akka.NET

Wed 3:30 PM - Salons D/E

As more and more data and systems grow larger and more complex, designing massively-concurrent systems becomes both more and more challenging and more and more common a problem facing developers. In this talk, we'll explore Akka.NET, a platform with run-time capabilities and behavior inspired by the Akka framework for Java.

Along the way, we'll come to understand the actor model and how it can greatly simplify both the development of massively-parallel systems and our ability to reason about them as developers. We'll also understand how AKKA.NET (and other actor-model-inspired frameworks) might have a role to play in your solutions even if you're not building the next multi-petabyte parallel processing system in your basement.
