Description

Building concurrent applications is hard, even more so when they need to be scaled up by adding more CPUs or scaled out over multiple computers. By the end of this course, you’ll understand how Actor Models provide a higher level abstraction for building concurrent applications and how to leverage the open source Akka.NET framework to easily build concurrent, self-healing, and distributed .NET applications.
