Building Distributed Systems with Akka.NET

A session at .NET Fringe 2016

Sunday 10th July, 2016

10:00am to 5:00pm (PST)

Workshop is at the Smith Memorial Student Union building on the 2nd floor in room 294 - Floorplans -> https://www.pdx.edu/floorplans/s...

Attendees must complete Akka.NET bootcamp before attending this course: http://learnakka.net/

Workshop Abstract:

Akka.NET is the future for building distributed systems in C#, F#, and .NET. In this workshop you will learn how to use Akka.NET actors to build fault tolerant, distributed systems using techniques like clustering, sharding, network failure detection, and more!

In this workshop you will learn:

The CAP theorem and how to actually use it in practice;
Dynamo-style clustering and how to use them to build systems that are partition tolerant and highly available;
Network programming with sockets;
Akka.Remote and using it for location transparency and network failure detection;
Akka.Cluster and its capabilities; and
Building stateful services using Akka.Cluster.Sharding to transparently distribute and recover data across the cluster.

This is an all-day workshop and it will be taught in C#. This is a concept-heavy course.
