Routing strategies within Akka.Net

By Anthony Brown

Akka.Net provides several implementations of the core routing logic to allow for a variety of techniques for distributing messages through the router to its routees. These routers allow for a wide variety of behaviours which ultimately allow us to continue to build applications that remain responsive even under intense load.
