The Actor Model

This lecture gives a more formal introduction to the Actor model. In particular we cover:

  • some historical background
  • first steps with the Akka implementation
  • handling mutable state within an Actor
  • sending and receiving messages
  • creating and stopping Actors

The video concludes with a demonstration of running an Actor System and a summary of what Actors are according to the formal model.
