Edoardo Vacchi
Red Hat

During my PhD I researched language design and implementation at University of Milan. After three years at UniCredit Bank’s R&D department, I have joined Red Hat in the KIE group. My current work is mainly on the Drools rules engine and the Kogito project.

Learn everything about all the fanciest recent features of the JDK, by implementing an actor system from scratch!

In this deep-dive, we will explain how an actor system works, and live-code it right before your eyes using expression switches, records, sealed type hierarchies, and virtual threads!

We will compare our actor system to other languages and actor runtimes, and will bring all of this to your fingertips with the power of JBang!
