Oh my God, they killed Kenny!

A story about (scalable) actor systems, where actors never die. The goal is to illustrate where an actor system can come into play, where it’s not useful, and how to make sure the actors keep on going. I will approach this from the developer point of view as well as the deployment side. The session will cover Akka.net framework, Orleans, their differences and similarities, and we will of course see how to deploy on Azure (AKS or ACI) using containers. Some very opinionated thoughts and real-life experiences with actors systems and development are included.
