Track 5: SyncDevelopHer & Local Speaker Track - Orleans

A session at NorDevCon 28th February 2014

Friday 28th February, 2014

10:45am to 11:30am (GMT)

Known for underpinning the Halo 4 server-side components, Orleans offers an actor based approach to programming for the cloud. This simplifies the programming model by removing shared state and thread safety concerns, and unlocks the potential for huge horizontal scale out. Orleans is a great fit for online computer games, but is also applicable in other areas, from business applications to the Internet of Things.

The talk will be an overview of the architecture, and a live coding demonstration.

Richard has had early access to the technology, which is not currently publicly available.
