In this talk we will show how highly-available stateful Actors provide a flexible and easy to use programming model for the Cloud on the outside, while still allowing for the traditional programming models on the inside.
And, actuall, his Cloud Programmability team is working on something about "Actors and Cloud".
Is it me, or does he have severe ADD That talk just went above me, I guess I don't relate well to category theory.
There are some things that you shouldn't expect to fully understand right away. Erik is usually working hard to bring it down to practical use, turning theory into practice. That's hard to do. What don't you understand? (Believe me, there's plenty I don't understand and I've been trying as well.)
Well, IMHO this talk is well focused on topic, except for those 'intermezzos'
The summery on the video page summerized it quite well, its all about the Actor model (which is imperative (inside), comonad (outside), loosely-coupled and has key-value store (state) ) vs Relational Database model (declarative SQL, consistence, tightly-coupled etc.), and which is suited for what kind of (open/close) world.
But maybe thats why we demand a Going Deep about this.
