here is an answer from Roger to one of my first questions: https://groups.google.com/d/msg/akkadotnet-user-list/A8RQqX-Oph0/CqXeyYDsv98J
that's what I do here
jcwrequests
@jcwrequests
Thanks. it's appreciated.
I have been using gitter so much I forget about google groups
So basically just query the actor system using the selection method. So if that actor is under several layers of hierarchy I don't have to pass the message all the way down the system takes care of that for me. Nice.

@jcwrequests
I wonder if there is a good document explaining best practices of modeling with aKKA selectors. Perhaps I should check out that book @rogeralsing was talking about Akka In Action I believe was the title maybe that is detailed there.
Natan Vivo
@nvivo
that's something I would like to see someday in the docs... it's more about patterns and good practices
Aaron has been publishing some stuff on his blog
but I think most of the stuff is for the jvm version
From what I have seen, usually external code would be calling top level actors
jcwrequests
@jcwrequests
NIce. I know NServiceBus did a good job covering that stuff. Sometimes it's nice to have a simple chart with the basic patterns, examples and use cases.
Natan Vivo
@nvivo
not as a rule.. but it's just that usually top level actors would be handling and distributing work
I think the problem is that at this abstraction level, almost every solution can be answered with "depends"
=)
I was looking at Nservice bus before discovering akka
but their license model changed, and I started looking for other things
then I found ZeroMq, read a huge book about it... then found akka, and almost every problem I had was solved.. =)
jcwrequests
@jcwrequests
I liked NServiceBus before the change. The guy who created ZeroMQ left that project and started something else then I think he even abandoned that one as well.
Natan Vivo
@nvivo
udi dahan ?
jcwrequests
@jcwrequests
Now Udi is NServiceBus I forget the guy who started ZeroMQ.
Natan Vivo
@nvivo
oh, right. got confused
jcwrequests
@jcwrequests
So many frameworks and libraries so little time ;)
Natan Vivo
@nvivo
I think that's the thing you're talking about: http://architects.dzone.com/articles/nanomsg-next-gen-zeromq-here
didn't know about that
jcwrequests
@jcwrequests
I know a guy who did dot net then moved over to GO and was using it.
Natan Vivo
@nvivo
interesting. I wonder how it's more lightweight than zeromq
zeromq is almost at the zero level already
but that guy is crazy... did you see his "M4" methodology for development?
jcwrequests
@jcwrequests
I believe so. Suppose to be wicked fast.
In this case stability is more important I think.
Natan Vivo
@nvivo
actually, it's this guy I was thinking: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pieter_Hintjens
they have a methodology to build software that don't require version numbers.
basically "the code is always stable".. i call it crazy talk =)
C4.. not M4 =)
jcwrequests
@jcwrequests
You sound like Richard Campbell from Dot Net Rocks. He always say that's crazy talk.
Natan Vivo
@nvivo
hahaha I love that show
got a mug from them last month
didn't arrive yet
jcwrequests
@jcwrequests
I just got caught up today. Three shows in a row plus Hansell Minutes.
Natan Vivo
@nvivo
oh man, I have so many podcasts to listen....
there is another show from Richard Campbell called "run as"
a little bit more technical
I have 5 hanselminutes to listen to
jcwrequests
@jcwrequests
That one is on my list too. NodeUp, Herding Code are some others I like
Natan Vivo
@nvivo
node up I didn't see. will check it up
i listen to Javascript Jabber and adventures in angular too
and of course: The Bugle, the best podcast ever =)
jcwrequests
@jcwrequests
I think we need to start the Akka podcast.
That would be cool. Though I would be happy just to finish my Pull Request Screen Cast.
Natan Vivo
@nvivo
yeah.. I'm thinking how much trouble I'm having to find enough stuff to fill the documentation
