Actyx builds on the local-first cooperation paradigm, where the autonomy of individual computing devices is of high importance: this is the foundation for creating a system that always works — as long as you have a running computer in your hand, that computer remains maximally useful.

Striving for this autonomy also poses some interesting questions: how do I know that someone else has received the information I just logged? Or the decision I just made? Working together requires two-way communication in many cases, which we explore in this article.
