Patrik Nordwall has been professional developer and software architect since 1996. He has a passion for technology and new knowledge. His areas of expertise include Scala, Akka, event-driven architecture, and various products for highly scalable systems.
Konrad is a late-night passionate dev, living by the motto "Life is Study!". His favourite discussion topics range from distributed systems and type systems to capybaras. In those rare times he is not coding, he spreads the joy of computer science, through helping local user groups and computer science reading clubs.
Martynas has acquired his formal education from Vilnius University while working on coding theory and cryptography fusion during his M.Sc degree studies. After this brief introduction to academia he continued his endeavours in the industry working on various banking and transportation systems which lead him to distributed computing and the Akka project.
Johan has worked as developer since 2004 when he completed his M.Sc. in Computer Science, most of the time has been with various technologies on top of the JVM. Before joining Lightbend he worked as a consultant and mentor focusing on Scala, Play and Akka.
After working on static source code analysis and receiving his M.Sc. in CS in 2006, Arnout went on to industry. Here he worked in a wide range of fields, from high-traffic enterprise e-commerce to financial data processing, predominantly based on the JVM. With that he became excited about how Akka can elegantly model today's concurrent and distributed systems.
Jonas Bonér invented Akka back in 2008 and is the CTO and co-founder of Lightbend (initially known as Typesafe).
Viktor Klang (√) was one of the first contributors to Akka, starting on the first day of public availability, and served as Project Lead from July of 2010 to November of 2012.
After earning a PhD in high-energy particle physics and while working as a systems engineer in the space business, Roland came in contact with the Akka project. He started contributing in 2010 and was employed by Typesafe 2011-2016 where he was leading the Akka project from November 2012.
Peter's background is in Artificial Intelligence research, particularly Natural Language Processing systems. He has also worked as a graphic designer, played music, and cooked in restaurants. Peter is currently the farthest flung member of the Akka team, living on the South Island of New Zealand.
After graduating with a M.Sc degree in Computer Science in 1998 at the Royal Institute of Technology Henrik Engström has been working as a consultant up until his Typesafe employment in 2011. Henrik has not only vast experience from various types of programming but also great domain knowledge within the finance, retail and e-gaming industries. Apart from his major interest, programming languages, he is also an avid Arsenal supporter, black belt in Shotokan Karate and a hobby wine connoisseur.
Björn Antonsson is a passionate software engineer whose experience ranges from the lowest levels of hardware memory models right through the operating system and the JVM as a founder and long time developer of JRockit, and straight up into high volume financial data systems and large traffic website.
Endre has been a teacher and PhD student at the Technical University of Budapest, where he has been researching complex systems and mobile ad hoc networks. His interest in distributed, high-performance and concurrent systems lead him to the world of actors and Akka in 2012.
