Akka Typed is bringing type-safety to Actor driven concurrent and distributed systems. It's something we in the Akka team have been maturing for a long time, and now are on the final stretch towards a production ready version of Akka Typed.
In this talk, prepared by Johan Andrén, yet amended and delivered by myself at JFokus 2018 (since sadly Johan got a bit sick and lost his voice), we explore the basics of typed actors and how they work, and differ from plain actors.
See for yourself in this 15 minutes long quicky talk:
