@DamianReeves
@Horusiath thanks. Point 1. has been my preferred approach, but I wasn't sure if something else was preferred.
So if I need to write a file from records in a database I do:
  1. Create an Actor for the whole process, lets call it DataWriterActor
  2. Create a child of DataWriterActor called DataExtractor
  3. Do data access in DataExtractor
  4. Tell parent of results
    Is this the recommended approach?
Bartosz Sypytkowski
@Horusiath
except making them a parent/child relation, yes :)
Damian Reeves
@DamianReeves
You keep them totally independent?
Bartosz Sypytkowski
@Horusiath
both of those actor types are making potentially risky operations, you could supervise them with dedicated parent actors and simply keep an actor ref between them
Damian Reeves
@DamianReeves
Ok got it
Roger Johansson
@rogeralsing
@skotzko what is the new "ready" label about ? it shows up on tasks that are not yet started so that seems odd
Weston
@ronnyek
so with the io shit, can the actors be multiplexed against same port on same ip?
or is it like the actors host the tcp endpoint?
Sean Killeen
@SeanKilleen
@rogeralsing maybe "ready" in the sense that tasks are ready to be worked on (e.g. acknowledged / explained enough)? Just spitballing a guess.
Roger Johansson
@rogeralsing
ah, that could be it
Sean Gilliam
@sean-gilliam
@Coinio you could be the first to write such an example ;)
Aaron Stannard
@Aaronontheweb
@Horusiath put them into separate tasks because I'm asking some of our newer contributors to take them on - this makes it easier to assign them
@GeertVL all of these issues are available for work - we'd really appreciate your help with them: https://github.com/akkadotnet/akka.net/labels/akka-remote
Coinio
@Coinio
@sean-gilliam Once I'm done with the bootcamp I'll definitely give it a go
Geert Van Laethem
@GeertVL
@Aaronontheweb can you tell me why you closed #1136 without merging. I want to learn from the mistake I made.
Aaron Stannard
@Aaronontheweb
@creepone we need to port the following spec to verify that the UID changes: akkadotnet/akka.net#1254, and this one for remote deathwatch akkadotnet/akka.net#1251
but even in the event of an unplanned termination, you should still get the deathwatch notification
@GeertVL yeah, I couldn't merge it into dev due to a merge conflict - asked you to do a rebase on dev a couple of weeks ago and never heard back
which would have resolved the issue
Geert Van Laethem
@GeertVL
@Aaronontheweb sorry I was on vacation.
Aaron Stannard
@Aaronontheweb
I figured you were busy
no worries man
you didn't do anything "wrong"
but I ended up needing that PR for something I had to work on
so I incorporated that change into one of mine
Geert Van Laethem
@GeertVL
@Aaronontheweb do I still try to fix it or is it done now?
Ha ok. That answers my question
Ok I look at the issues on akka-remote.
Aaron Stannard
@Aaronontheweb
thanks man, we'd really appreciate that
if you have any questions about what to do with those issues, you can always ping me in here or if you'd like I can give you my Skype info
Geert Van Laethem
@GeertVL
On a side note, Is it wise to study scala and Akka to be more of a help with akka.net?
Yes please that makes it easier.
Aaron Stannard
@Aaronontheweb
through the act of trying to port Akka to .NET, you'll end up learning a lot of Scala that way
Geert Van Laethem
@GeertVL
I thought so.
Aaron Stannard
@Aaronontheweb
for instance, they have their own version of the TPL (Scala Futures)
Geert Van Laethem
@GeertVL
ok
Aaron Stannard
@Aaronontheweb
which actually acts and behaves a lot like ours, but the names for things are a little different
Geert Van Laethem
@GeertVL
I see.
Aaron Stannard
@Aaronontheweb
the thing that, to this day, still trips me up though is that Scala has something like 200+ binary and ternary operators
for doing things like immutable list appends / removes
all sorts of stuff - makes the Scala code really concise but sometimes I find myself scratching my head
you'll pick it up faster than you might think though!
Geert Van Laethem
@GeertVL
Ok but reading the book "Scala for the impatient" that I bought should be helpful :-)
And my skypehandle is geertvanl
Aaron Stannard
@Aaronontheweb
cool, I'll add you
Geert Van Laethem
@GeertVL
Tx Aaron
Aaron Stannard
@Aaronontheweb
mine is the same as my Gitter handle
Geert Van Laethem
@GeertVL
easy :-)
Aaron Stannard
@Aaronontheweb
@haighis is there anything else I need to do for Travis-CI support?
Geert Van Laethem
@GeertVL
Ok I jump into the code. Tx mate
