Akka is a kick as technology. Today I want to share a video I made about how we can model an actor system using Akka, Scala, SBT, and IntelliJ Idea. We will model a vending machine using Akka and Scala. We will take advantage of the Scala Type system and Akka typed actors. Type Systems are great because they make programming more secure and prevent bugs and require less testing since the compiler does more for you. For this video, we also will be using SBT 1.4.0, Scala 2.13, and Akka 2.6. So I hope you guys like it. So let’s get started!
