NSBCon 2015: Full-Stack, Message-Oriented Programming with Akka.NET Actors

The Moore's Law party is over. We cannot make processors more powerful by making them faster. We have no choice but to embrace multiple processors, multi-core processors, and multiple threads in our code.

But how do you do this? In his session at NSBCon 2015, Andrew Skotzko introduces us to message-based programming with the actor model and Akka.NET. Andrew shows how immutable messages, combined with the actor behaving as a unit of concurrency, make taking advantage of all those processors and cores much easier.
