Hugh is a solutions architect at Lightbend. He’s had a long career building applications that evolved slowly, that inefficiently utilized their infrastructure, and that were brittle and prone to failure. That all changed when he started building reactive, asynchronous, actor-based systems. This radically new way of building applications rocked his world. As an added benefit, building application systems became way more fun that it had ever been. Now he is focused on helping others to discover the significant advantages and joys of building responsive, resilient, elastic, message-based applications.
