Message passing for actors and humans (CodeMesh 2018)

Elixir, and Erlang, implement an elegant model of message passing. This is their secret sauce for managing concurrency. What if the message passing model extended beyond the server? This talk will explore using the actor model to reason about interactions in a web application, from server to browser to human.

This is my talk from CodeMesh this year. Slides available

Topics include; General explanation of the Actor model, what it might look like in JavaScript and how it has directing my thinking while developing Raxx and GenBrowser
