@EricFowler enclose code snippets with triple back ticks (```) to format them as code

@EricFowler Sys is not Akka class, it looks like a property of object which contains tutorial code snippets.
var sys = ActorSystem.Create("tutorial-actor-system");
var firstRef = sys.ActorOf(Props.Create<PrintMyActorRefActor>(), "first-actor");

@Aaronontheweb is it planned to implement a clean way in TestKit to wait that an actor completes the handling of a message? Currently, after a actor.Tell(something), I need to put a Thread.Sleep() or a await Task.Delay(), which doesn’t look a proper way of testing.. unless I’m missing an existing way to accomplish it. I wouldn’t like to add reply messages just to be able to test the code

Hi - hoping for a bit of clarification on something. Should I be able to run both a .NET Framework 4.5.2 node and a .NET Core 2.1 node on the same cluster and have them communicate ok? A .NET Standard shared library for the message objects should work, right?

@vasily-kirichenko Ah ok.
@vasily-kirichenko Is it a serialisation issue?

@babelchips yes. A netstandard 2.0 compatible version is in the works.

Hey guys... Is there some sort of rule about Priority Mailboxes and Tell/Ask from outside the system? I've got a thing happening where it looks like none of my messages sent from outside the system (directly, i.e. local IActorRef) are going through the mailbox.
the message gets received by the actor, and when the actor gets messages from it's children (The only other thing really inside the system) those do go through the mailbox

Ahhh.... I think I figured it out. It looks like mailbox gets involved in prioritizing when there is more than one message enqueued to the mailbox!
