Actor Model - Vaughn Vernon

In a recent interview with Dr. Dobb's, the pioneer of object-orientation and co-designer of Smalltalk, Alan Kay, said: "The Actor model retained more of what I thought were the good features of the object idea." Actors are a powerful concept, which greatly reduce the complexity of distributed, concurrent systems. Yet, the Actor model is rarely used today, and when it is used, is often relegated to a technical, infrastructural concern. What would it be like to leverage Actors as the central theme in a carefully crafted domain-driven designed model? In this talk, Vaughn will explore the use of the Actor Model with DDD. He will explain the Actor Model as an architectural style and how the basic ideas of the Actor Model and DDD can greatly simplify our ability to comprehend concurrency and distribution.
