Actors talk for SDForum

25 Jun 2009

Last night I got to give a short talk at SDForum on “solving real problems with actors”, or more specifically, why I got interested in using scala actors, how they’re used in naggati and kestrel, and what I learned about where they’re useful and not. It was fun, even though I was a little nervous – they had me speaking after Carl Hewitt, one of the instigators of the actor model, and Frank Sommers, who’s writing a book about actors in scala.

Here are the slides:

Thanks to everyone who came, and everyone who chatted afterwards! It was worth the drive. :)
