Hello everyone
I am very glad to see such an awesome project in .Net land
I work doing mostly Scala in the server
but soon I am going to move to a .Net shop, so, bye bye Scala :(

oh, I never left .Net 100%, I used to do .Net 2 years ago :)
thanks, I will do so
I wonder what's the status of getting akkadotnet with an http facing api
like spray.io and its http recipe
is it already there or at least in the ovens? :)

we're a ways away yet, but I think @Horusiath has an initial design he started working on for Akka.IO
and I think parts of that ended up getting moved to spray inside canonical Akka
but at the moment I think @Horusiath is spending most of his time working on Akka.Persistence, which looks like it's not too far away from being in an alpha / beta stage
so if that's an area where you feel comfortable contributing (Akka.IO / HTTP interface) then I think you can jump right in

@Aaronontheweb that's great, I confess that I mostly do the front end stuffs at the company I currently work for, but I consume the akka services the server side ninjas built for me and at times I have the chance to take a peek at the server side coding in scala and it's quite impressive...
That being said, akka and actors programming in general is something I would love to learn, and I just heard about the news of PetaBridge and its plans to offer training on that subject, thus, I'm thrilled to know about it and sign up for a course in the future ;)
