Akka.NET makes building concurrent and reactive WPF applications easier. With Akka.NET, we can easily create user interfaces that react to changes in the model, and we can easily execute multiple activities concurrently without needing to write complex and error-prone locking and thread-management code. The results of these concurrent activities can be easily marshalled back onto the UI through the use of view-models and "bridge" actors. As an added benefit, due to the supervision features in Akka.NET, we can design our WPF applications to be self-healing.
