I’m CEO and founder of Lightbend, building kalix—a cloud-to-edge high-performance developer PaaS for event-driven backend systems—and akka—a cloud-to-edge reactive distributed systems platform.

In 2011 I became a java champion, in 2012 I was voted as the number one developer in Sweden, and in 2013 I wrote the reactive manifesto. See my Interviews and Resumé pages for more info.

Code, Talks, & Writings

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

On the Talks page you can find a list with video recordings from my talks throughout the years, and if you are interested in my articles, books, and white papers then head over to the Writings page.
