This completes the introduction to Akka, where we saw the evolution of the microprocessors, the problems with writing/using the Java concurrency models for distributed applications, and how Akka's Actor Model provides an answer to the two problems. We also learned the key constructs that define the Akka framework and sample use cases where Akka is a prime candidate for use.

In the next chapter, we will get started with Akka, we will go through the motions of installing the development environment and write our first Akka application.
