Developing applications in a reactive style ensures that the experience

is always responsive. Akka.NET is a framework for building

distributed, message-driven applications which are able to stay

responsive for the user even in the face of failure or when faced with

more users. It makes it easy for .NET developers to write applications

which are able to react to changes in their environment.

Reactive Applications with Akka.NET begins with an overview of

reactive and a sample application written in the reactive style. Readers

will learn concepts of the actor model and what these mean in a realworld

reactive context. This hands-on book builds on fundamental

concepts that teach how to create reliable and resilient applications. It

also teaches useful Akka.NET features for building real-world

applications. By the end of the book, readers will be able to look at a

problem domain and understand how to create applications which are

able to withstand modern demands.

Key features:

• Hands-on examples that build on fundamental concepts• Building real-world applications with Akka.NET• Designing an Internet of Things architecture with reactive in

mind

• How to create applications that can withstand modern demands

AUDIENCE

Readers should be comfortable with C# or F# and the .NET framework. No

previous reactive experience needed.
