Akka 2.0: Scaling Up & Out With Actors

A session at Northeast Scala Symposium 2012

Friday 9th March, 2012

10:45am to 11:20am (EST)

We believe that one should never have to choose between productivity and scalability, which has been the case with traditional approaches to concurrency and distribution. The cause of that has been the wrong tools and the wrong layer of abstraction and Akka is here to change that. Akka is a unified runtime and programming model for scaling both UP (utilizing multi-core processors) and OUT (utilizing the grid/cloud). With Akka 2.0 this will be taken to a whole new level, "Distributed by Design".
