The Actor Model
I love this conversation between Carl Hewitt, Clemens Szyperski, and Erik Meijer, describing the Actor Model. It is a very interesting concurrency model that use an abstraction called actor as the fundamental unit of computation (embodying processing, storage, and communications). I would like to learn more about actors and how to use them with akka.
This is maybe the most famous quote about the Actor Model.
- “One actor is no actor, they come in systems”
See you next time.
