Introduction to the Actor Model through Akka.net

In this session we'll go through what the actor model is all about and how it solves complex development problems.
Afterwards we'll tackle a small demo with the use of Akka.net on a mobile app with Xamarin.

The Actor Model provides a higher level of abstraction for writing concurrent and distributed systems. It alleviates the developer from having to deal with explicit locking and thread management, making it easier to write correct concurrent and parallel systems.

Akka.NET is a toolkit and runtime for building highly concurrent, distributed, and fault tolerant event-driven applications.

This session can be followed up by "Revival of the Actor model with IoT, Azure Service Fabric and Dapr", which goes a lot deeper and focuses on ASF and Dapr as the perfect match for running actors.
