Revival of the Actor model with IoT, Azure Service Fabric and Dapr

The Actor model has been around since 1973, but has rarely been the go-to solution for IT problems even though it's a very powerful programming model. However today with IoT becoming more prominent and technological support from services like Azure Service Fabric and the Dapr runtime, actors are here to stay.

During this session, we'll go hands-on, showing the possibilities of the actor model using today's technology. Learn why you should use actors for your IoT (and other) problems, and what has changed since Akka.NET and Orleans.

Our session "Introduction to the Actor Model through Akka.net" can be used as a hands-on introduction to the actor model concepts (lvl 250) and be followed up by this session which goes a lot deeper (300+).
