Concurrency has always been a challenging area due to its complexity and unpredictability. Thanks to its Actor-Based Model, Akka provides a tool to tackle concurrency issues and easily create performant and scalable applications. In this talk we will describe what Akka is, what are the advantages of using it and how to use it -- or probably we should say "how not to use it"! We will also discuss Actors and their life cycle. Finally, we will provide examples of their four core operations: create, send, become and supervise actors.
