“If you can’t solve a problem, it’s because you’re playing by the rules.”
- Paul Arden


I’m founder and CTO of Lightbend, building a platform for Reactive Systems on the JVM—implementing the principles of the reactive manifesto, a manifesto that I initiated and co-authored.

In 2011 I became a java champion and in 2012 I was voted as the number one developer in Sweden. See my Interviews and Resumé pages for more info on what I have been up to work-wise.

Code & Talks

I’m a long time contributor to the Open Source community; most notably created the Akka message-driven runtime and the AspectWerkz AOP compiler. See my GitHub page for some of my recent projects.

You can find a list with some of the video recordings from my talks throughout the years, on the Talks page. Slides for some of these talks are available on my slideshare page.
