Kevin Webber

I’m a software architect, analyst, and technical speaker from Toronto, Canada. I specialize in the modernization of legacy systems using reactive programming and microservices architecture.

My previous role was at Lightbend (formerly Typesafe), the corporate entity behind the Scala programming language, Akka distributed systems framework, Play web framework, and Lagom microservices framework. In my role at Lightbend I worked as Enterprise Architect, acting as an analyst and advisor to major enterprises on systems modernization projects using the principles of reactive programming.
