I’ve been working in IT since 1999 and currently working as Software Architect at Info Support.
I have a strong passion for building distributed systems, systems-integration, (web-scale) software architecture and patterns, software craftsmanship and sharing knowledge about these subjects. I do this by blogging, speaking on events and training people. For my community contributions I've been awarded a Microsoft MVP award.
I’m the owner of the Web-Scale Architecture NL MeetUp group and initiator of dotnetFlix, a public video channel to inspire the Dutch community to pick-up on innovative technology.

This session features an overview of Actor Model theory and shows you how to use the Akka.NET framework by walking through a demo application.
