Have you been frustrated trying to write a multithreaded program and sticking synchronized on all of your methods? Can’t tell your monitors from your semaphores? There has to be a better way! In this talk, we’ll discuss actor-based concurrency and how it can simplify multithreaded programming. We will distill down Akka Actors, a JVM implementation of the concurrency model that made Erlang famous. Hope to see you there.
