Track 2

Building Microservices with Service Fabric Actors

Coding Level 4
Advanced Level 1

During this talk we will introduce how to architect a solution not through the typical monolith of a three-tier architecture, but taking advantage of fine-grained functionality delivered through the Microsoft Service Fabric Actors. We will first show the basic behaviour of how Actors work; introducing the single threaded programming model, the GC model for Actors, how to deliver time-based messaging to actors, and how Service Fabric delivers fault tolerance. Once you have a solid understanding of how Actors work we will develop an Actor-based application, using thousands of Actors. Welcome to Hollywood!
