Watched another video from Oredev 2011, this one presented by Chris Patterson.
This is excellent if you want to see what Actor Model Programming is all about. Chris starts with an overview and then after describing the problems with traditional architecture, demonstrates how Actor Model Programming works and can be a way to address them. Plenty of hands on code and descriptions along the way.
