How to handle concurrency in an application using Akka.NET

The Actor Model programming paradigm for building highly concurrent systems was defined back in the seventies. In this session attendees will learn about Akka.NET, a modern open-source framework that can be used to build highly concurrent systems based on the Actor Model programming paradigm. The session introduces the Actor Model concepts and an overview of the Akka.NET framework. This will be followed by a deep dive into the code of a concurrent application built using Akka.NET.
