How to best interact between WinForms/WPF and actors? Is there support for syncing actor messages to the GUI thread?

@ralfw I think Unit 2 is likely to cover something like that https://twitter.com/petabridge/status/570341638662328321

@ralfw Yes, @bruinbrown is correct. Unit 2 covers this in depth. We’re finalizing the unit and it will release in next day or two

@ralfw we cover that in lesson 1 of Unit 2 - there's a special Dispatcher we use for allowing actors to run on the GUI thread
we also get into how Akka.NET configuration works - the HOCON stuff

@/all btw, if you already finished unit 1 but are getting emails for it, you can scroll to the bottom and click the link that says “skip to unit 2” and it’ll switch your email track over
