The Actor Model that was introduced in 1973 looks at the world as a set of actors that holds a state and a behavior. This idea is very similar to OOP that we all know and love, but actors are not limited to a single machine. Instead, actors can be distributed to multiple processes and machine, and create a network of processors that encapsulate the problem-domain. This model has significant implications on the way we can write large scale distributed systems and can make very hard problems, very easy to solve. In this session you will get to know Akka.Net library that makes the Actor model a piece of cake.
