Lesson 2.1: Passing Akka.configuration HOCON in program.cs instead of App.config
Why this is not working (defining HOCON in program.cs)?
static void Main()
            var config = ConfigurationFactory.ParseString(@"
                      /charting {
                            dispatcher =

            var system = ActorSystem.Create("MyActorSystem", config);
            //var system = ActorSystem.Create("MyActorSystem"); //Original

            ChartActors = ActorSystem.Create("ChartActors");
            Application.Run(new Main());

@Davtomas I think /charting needs to be /ChartActor
And you probably want to create an actor right?^^ ActorSystem.Create("ChartActors") creates another ActorSystem. You need system.ActorOf to create an actor also contains the different ways of setting a dispatcher
