Concurrency with Actors

speaker: Kwabena Aning

The proliferation of processors with multiple cores has made it imperative that software engineers are able to write software in ways that can exploit all the resources that modern computers have made available.

This talk will focus on some of the motivation for writing concurrent software, some considerations when writing concurrent software, and finally settle on the Actor model of concurrent computing all the time giving the audience a bit of a historical context for an age old problem.
