This chapter introduces the concept of an Actor as an approach to the development of concurrent programs. In particular we focus on the Scala Akka implementation of the Actor model based on release 2.5.x (the current release at the time of writing). Note that older versions of Scala also had their own implementation of the Actor model—however this is now deprecated and the recommendation is to use the Akka implementation.
