Building Concurrent Applications with the Actor Model in Akka.NET

by Jason Roberts

Easily build concurrent .NET applications using the high level abstractions of the Actor Model that automatically recovers from errors and that can be distributed across multiple computers with little additional effort.

What you'll learn

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.
