Introduction to the Actor Model for Concurrent Computation

| Comments

The Actor Model is a computational model for designing concurrent, distributed systems around the principal of self-contained Actors which operate on sending and receiving messages. While the idea has been around since the mid to late 70’s, it is now gaining more traction with frameworks and languages such as Akka and Erlang, which share many similar principals.

See John Murray, Senior Software Engineer at AppNexus, serve up an introduction to Actor Model principals and concepts and give a look at how we can construct parallel systems using the Akka framework.
