There are several frameworks across languages and platforms of Actors, including Erlang, Fantom, Java and Scala. As developers have built systems using these frameworks, patterns of use have begun to emerge that represent "Best Practices" for actor-based systems. In this talk, we will review such patterns, focusing primarily on how to implement them using the Akka framework and Scala.
