Front-ends with Play! and back-ends with Spark.
Interested in Play!, Rails at work.
Scala, Clojure, OCaml, Haskell.
I'm a software engineer, a computer scientist, and a dad. I'm doing functional programming in Scala, Clojure, Haskell and OCaml, and even Ruby. I'm currently a researcher at Klout, changing the way we think about social influence.

Scala saves you a lot of time and leverages existing jars for fast cloud deployment, and we'll continue exploring agile and lean approach to startups with Scala tools.
