@Aaronontheweb thanks for the link I will check it out. Today I was thinking that it actually may make a good blog post. Currently I am trying to keep a cadence of a new post every two weeks and right now I am a little off track and this would be the perfect thing to talk about since it's what my current focus is. @stefansedich thanks for offer I might take you up on it. I already have some preliminary thoughts down on paper which I know will work but what I am trying to do is minimize any impact to the core framework.

@stefansedich it looks like from your LinkedIn Profile you do AutoFac which would definitely come in handy since my IOC of choice is Castle WIndsor. Since my IOC contrib is being reworked it may be worth while to also find a way to validate the container to ensure that all registred actors are using the proper life cycle, like transient. I know it's something that is fairly easy to do in Castle but I am not sure about the other IOC containers. It's not something that is absolutely necessary but it help keep users on the happy path.

10am in the morning :)
with autofac the props will need to work a bit differently I think
we should resolve an Owned<T>
and then later dispose that owned so that we release things properly.
Autofac container does not have anything like a release method.
or create a LifetimeScope and keep track of that inside the props, then when you call Props.Dispose() dispose that LifetimeScope

Sounds good to me. I am basing this on a great post that I read by the author of Dependency Injection for .Net Mark Seemann.
Either way I think the abstraction that I have in mind will work in both cases. Obviously the implementations will be different.

yeah as long as I can keep track of a lifetimescope and later dispose that I am happy.

That should not be a problem as long as my research is correct.

let me know when you have something going and I can work on getting the autofac provider working right.

I would go ahead and start and what I can do is try and get my notes up on github or google docs and I will send you a link. It really seems like it should be fairly easy to accomplish but it will require some changes to the Props object and the IndirectActorProducer interface to work properly.

once we have a Release or Dispose interface on the Props I can fix the autofac implementation easily.

We hopefully had our last snow storm of the year. We have been dealing with sub zero temps for that last month and I am ready for spring.

If you want to hit me up on linkedIn feel free or on email. I usually check those during the day.

ok cool sounds good, I might just work on a implementation then of the overall release idea, merge it into one a the end of it perhaps?

Gitter works fine for reading on a smart phone not to well for authoring messages.
Good I will talk to you soon. Signing off.

does anyone know of an opensource project using akka.net? A full designed application to look into.

Not sure, we are leaving beta any day now, will most likely pop up more community stuff then. There are some major systems going into prod right now though

@BrunoMVPCosta I built this on Friday - made a full-fledged web crawler powered by Akka.NET using its clustering module, ASP.NET, SignalR, and Windows Services
I'm going to document it this week with an architecture diagram and some other stuff and once that's done you'll see it in https://github.com/petabridge/akkadotnet-code-samples
I'm also using pre-release Akka.NET bits which I still need to check into the repo in order for local builds to run :p

Cool, I'll take a look at the project later.
