Reactive Applications with Akka.NET
Reactive Applications with Akka.NET is a hands-on book that builds on fundamental concepts to teach you how to create reliable and resilient applications in the reactive style.
Enterprise-scale software needs to be unfailingly reliable, consistently performant under unpredictable loads, and easy to scale and maintain. Reactive applications guarantee these qualities through clear isolation of system components and message-based communication. Akka.NET ports the battle-tested Akka Actors toolkit from the JVM, radically simplifying the concurrency and asynchronous message handling at the heart of a reactive system.
Reactive Applications with Akka.NET teaches you to write high-performance, concurrent systems without explicitly managing threads and locking. You'll experience the power of Akka.NET and the Actors concurrency model by exploring a real-world case study in each chapter. As you go further, you'll start to grok the power of asynchronous communicat ...
