Life with actors - experience report

Vagif Abilov (Miles)
Erlend Wiig (NRK)

All the software's a stage,
And all the components merely actors;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And they send each other messages.

Did Shakespeare write that? Perhaps not exactly. Never mind, this talk is about modern times, so modern that some developers no longer find proven OO paradigm convincing and instead ride new waves - or should I say - newly discovered old waves, since we'll talk about actor model.

It's been a year since our team at NRK commenced a media distribution project using Akka.NET. Queues and cloud storage providers, millions of files, all managed by actors. What did we learn? What did we gain? Come to our talk and you'll know!

NB! Most of code examples (there will be a lot) are in F#, however the presentation is not language-specific, it's not even platform-specific since the main lessons we learned from the project are about use of actor model in general.

    As a non-F# developer, I had a hard time following the code examples. F# syntax is very strange to the C# developer, so examples in C# would have been appreciated.

      Important input, Thomas. Our main focus was on Akka and we used F# examples to illustrate our points. If you mean that they distracted understanding of the topic, we should be either more explicit in stating that this is F# presentation or combine it with examples in C#.
