Scala Architect, Data Engineer, OSS Author, Tech Community Organizer

I am an architect, engineer, teacher and mentor. I'm an engineer on the Fast Data Platform team at Lightbend. We're building the next generation big data platform distribution with a focus on stream processors, machine learning, and operations ease of use.

I'm the organizer of the Scala Toronto (scalator) meetup. Join us for regular meetups about the Scala programming language and to hang out with Toronto's Scala hackers. I also co-organize the Toronto Apache Spark meetup.

I'm a big fan of Scala, Spark, Kafka, and Akka. See my GitHub and learning-spark repository for practical examples that can help you learn more about Spark, Kafka, Akka, and Akka Streams.

I'm the author of the node.js connect-prism and grunt-connect-prism libraries. Use prism to record, mock, and proxy HTTP traffic as middleware with the connect middleware framework.
