Finding Akka Typed difficult to learn?

If you’re finding Akka Typed hard to learn, fear not, it took me almost two days to get the simplest of their Scala examples working. And I had already written the original Scala Cookbook, and already knew how to use Akka Classic!

As a remedy to this problem, I wrote about how to use Akka Typed in the 2021 version of the Scala Cookbook. In the book I show some of the simplest possible Akka Typed examples, so you won’t have to waste two days of your life trying to get a simple example running.
