The Actor Model is the latest fad to storm the software industry. But is there any substance behind it and why should you care? What are the drivers of the Actor Model and why have the large cloud vendors started offering Actor-based solutions? Juval Lowy puts it all together first by outlining the long-term trend in software methodologies that brought to this 50-years old computational model to the fore, and how the demise of Moore’s Law coupled with the rise of the IoT will force us to abandon sequential programming. Juval will examine the origin of the Actor Model; demonstrate Actors using conceptual examples, outline emerging design patterns, point out common misconceptions and conclude with his views on the future of the Actor Model.
