At Lightbend, I led engineering teams that built streaming data systems, such as production of ML/AI capabilities. I spoke at conferences around the world and wrote about data and related technology trends for O'Reilly Media.
Specifically, I conceived Lightbend Fast Data Platform and ran the engineering teams that built it. It is a Kubernetes-based platform for streaming data processing at scale, using Spark, Flink, Akka Streams, and Kafka, with tools to accelerate development, deployment, management, and monitoring of streaming applications.
