Presentation: Actors or Not: Async Event Architectures

Yaroslav Tkachenko discusses two approaches to an asynchronous event-based architecture. The first is a "classic" style protocol that they've been implementing at Demonware (Activision) for Call of Duty back-end services. The second is an actor-based approach in place at Bench Accounting. He explores the benefits, challenges, and lessons learned architecting both Actor and Non-Actor systems.
