Take 60 minutes to understand the Power of the Actor Model with "Designing Reactive Systems: The Role Of Actors In Distributed Architecture". Brought to you in partnership with Lightbend.

Could you make Pong today? I mean really make it. Not make something just like it, but make it exactly, as it was made in 1972.

That's one of the central ideas of Chris Hughes' (@chews) talk at PhoneGap Day 2013, titled "Making Real Sh_t." He explores the ideas of creation and composition in terms of code - for instance, whether developers appreciate the things that have come before and allow them to assemble, to some degree, rather than create - and shares his own experiences with each.


Learn how the Actor model provides a simple but powerful way to design and implement reactive applications that can distribute work across clusters of cores and servers. Brought to you in partnership with Lightbend.
